Mark Cuban on pitching, predictions, and the President: ‘Disrupters are everything’

Leah Yamshon | March 15, 2017
From bailing on Uber to recognising the power of Snapchat, the Shark Tank star and entrepreneur knows a thing or two about disruption.

Cuban thinks that we’ll see more tech advancement in the next 10 years than we have in the last 30, and predicts that artificial intelligence will be responsible for most of that change.

“If you are not getting up to speed on machine learning, deep learning, and neural networks, you lose,” he said, pointing to Google as a company that has grown immensely from working on AI databases. With any booming industry, the money will follow, which is why Cuban is watching this realm closely.

“I am telling you, the world’s first trillionaires are going to come from somebody who masters AI and all its derivatives and applies it in ways we never thought of.” 

 

The American Dream is alive and well 

Shark Tank has been going strong for eight seasons, and Cuban calls it a perfect showcase for why the American Dream is not dead just yet.

“Any kid of any age is going to have that next great idea. That’s what makes our country great—we have that entrepreneurial zeal to do something new and something different.”
