 Microsoft former CEO Ballmer: technology has incredible influence.

I like to manage Microsoft, but basketball is a completely different concept, Ballmer said in an interview with the director of the Ballmer Institute at the Beverly Sean Milken global conference. They provide different adrenaline stimulation for you. Every 24 seconds, are we all worried about the score? Every 48 minutes, we cant help asking whether we can win the game. The sports industry has a very high accountability culture. In software, you can assign someone to solve a problem. In business, we said we could talk about it tomorrow. But in sports, it means that everything is over. On the Losangeles clippers, Ballmers life was not easy. This is not a winning team. It lives under the shadow of the Losangeles Lakers. We can only work harder, Ballmer said. It was also one of the reasons Ballmer wanted to build a new basketball hall for the Clippers in Losangeles, not just the Lakers home - StaplesCenter. We want our own home, he said. The Staples Center was built in 1999, and the modern arena has been built differently. We can make money by building a arena. In terms of philanthropy, Ballmer is still a digital man, just like he is in Microsoft. Last year, Ballmer created a 10-K document for the government, called USAFacts, telling people about the federal deficit and the flow of budget funds. He said: we are concerned about the fact. If you want to make a decision, you need digital support, not just say, spend more money on education. Ballmer believes that sports teams and anti - poverty programs are related to some extent, like athletes growing up in poor communities, and only basketball skills can make them out. The team enables the athletes to acquire life skills training through the player development resources of the Clippers. He said: our focus is on a better economic development opportunity for the disadvantaged children. With the help of the educational system, Ballmer has been working hard to study these figures and study the details, such as the quality of the teachers, the stability of the childrens families, the food supply, the safety of the community, the conditions of housing, and so on. Milken pointed out that the US high school graduation rate has increased from 71% in 1998 to 82% in 2013, but the reading and mathematics ability has not made much progress. Ballmer said he hoped to have an impact on early childhood education, but he hoped to keep track of the progress made by children at high school and college. He said he will soon meet with the National Association of government auditors. He thumped the table with his fist and said, I am excited to get this opportunity. Ballmer said his father was an emigrant from Switzerland and was a translator of the war crimes trial in Nuremberg. He got a job and had the chance to get his qualification through language skills. Ballmer said his father had done a different job in the United States and had served as a hotel lobby receptionist, wage clerk, and assembly line worker until he found a medium level job in the Ford Motor Co. His mothers family was Jewish, and they had to escape the Holocaust in Eastern Europe, and his grandfather started from scratch. He admitted that Ballmers family was not a junk bond maker. Milken later became the king of junk bonds and made a lot of money. But in an insider trading survey in 1989, Milken was accused of fraud and securities fraud, sentenced to 10 years in prison, fined $600 million, and permanently banned by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. His sentence was later reduced to two years. Milken asked Ballmer questions for an hour, and finally asked Ballmers views on the technology industry. I think the positive impact of future technology on our world is undervalued or overly worried, Ballmer said. For example, the article about automation almost always talks about how it will eliminate work. But with proper privacy, if you can use data to help children and educate you from childhood, you may get better results. Technology is there, the key is how you apply it and how to use it better? Ballmer added: I think technology has an incredible impact on anything, and its a very positive impact. We talked about artificial intelligence for many years. Technology can improve human creativity and productivity, which may bring a lot of fun to the next generation of virtual reality games. We are using these techniques at the Clippers.
