He's also voiced support for universal basic income, or cash handouts, professing an optimistic belief that if everyone were able to pay their bills, then more humans would be actively chasing their dreams.
"Right now, when there are all these people who don't have the opportunity to go pursue their dreams or go build a new business, we all lose," according to Zuckerberg on a Facebook live this summer. "If you who are watching this had more opportunity to go build something that would be a historic business or enterprise that could serve people all around the world, that would improve the economy and give services to all of us that we could all benefit from."
Showing even more optimism, the billionaire got into a public debate with Elon Musk about the potential impact of artificial intelligence.
Musk has repeatedly warned that artificial intelligence is a danger that needs to be feared and regulated. "I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it," according to Musk. "AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization."
Zuckerberg, however, focuses on the potential benefit of artificial intelligence.
"I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic," says Zuckerberg. "I think you can build things and the world gets better. But with AI especially, I am really optimistic. And I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible."
"In the next five to 10 years, AI is going to deliver so many improvements in the quality of our lives," adds Zuckerberg.
