AI Revolution: Humanity’s Next Leap, Surpassing the Printing Press and Computers?


Jamie Dimon says AI may be as impactful on humanity as printing press, electricity and computers


Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, believes artificial intelligence (AI) will profoundly impact society and the banking industry.

In his annual letter to shareholders, Dimon emphasized the transformative potential of AI, comparing it to major technological advancements like the printing press and the internet.

JPMorgan has invested heavily in AI, employing over 2,000 specialists in the field and developing various AI applications, such as fraud detection, marketing, and risk controls.

Dimon envisions AI enhancing the capabilities of employees and potentially creating new roles while also potentially phasing out certain job categories.

Dimon’s letter also touched on other pressing economic and geopolitical issues.

He expressed concern about inflation, geopolitical risks, and the current disconnect between financial market valuations and the likelihood of a soft economic landing.

Regarding social media, Dimon advocated for greater user control over content and feed algorithms to promote responsible use and limit the spread of harmful content.

Finally, Dimon discussed JPMorgan’s acquisition of First Republic, acknowledging its financial benefits and the complexities involved in integrating a major company.

Overall, Dimon believes AI holds extraordinary promise and encourages collaboration and thoughtful regulation to harness its potential while mitigating potential risks.

    “He also touched on inflation, geopolitics, social media and the bank’s First Republic deal.”

    “The impact will be “possibly as transformational as some of the major technological inventions of the past several hundred years: Think the printing press, the steam engine, electricity, computing and the Internet.””


    “I believe the odds are a lot lower than that.”

    “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent abhorrent attack on Israel and ongoing violence in the Middle East should have punctured many assumptions about the direction of future safety and security, bringing us to this pivotal time in history.”
