Just a few decades ago, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates started revolutionizing the technology world by making the impossible — possible.
They gave us all the chance to enjoy technology as we do it now. Every day.
Their discovery changed all our lives into better.
And it’s not only them. There were many great minds in human history, so when we look back we can remember them easily:
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg and so many others…
Their discoveries changed the world and our lives.
While they saw a different future and carried a breakthrough vision of a new world in their minds other people were unaware of it.
So now, let me ask you something.
Are you actually aware of what is happening in the world at this very moment?
Do you know what is the next big thing that will have a huge impact on our future?
Like one of my friends said: “New electricity has been discovered”.
To me, it is even beyond that. It is much more important than electricity. All things that we see now as impossible will be possible sooner than we think and all because of one phenomenon.
I won't tell you AI’s development history here, this is not the topic of this article but I would like to show you the immensely fast development of this phenomena in the past couple of years.
Let me show you one image that explains everything.
As you see, the plane is already taking off:)
So the question here is not about the history, importance, development or good and bad traits of AI. The question here is:
Are you ready to fly on this plane?
Today’s investments will have a massive impact in 10 years
Just like other technological discoveries that caused today’s big companies to be founded, AI will cause future’s companies to redesign the world we know now in a much better place for us.
If you read the history of the digital revolution, you can see that every invention had a massive impact on humanity in a way that they made our life easier and better.
On lead to another.
The developments in the hardware industry caused computer companies like Apple to exist.
With the rise of the Internet, companies like Google and Amazon entered our lives.
Web 2.0 transformed the Internet into a better and more interactive place.
The static websites were replaced by dynamic ones giving the ability to everyone to contribute and actively participate in the evergrowing Online world.
So there you go, Facebook and Twitter were born.
As you can see, one developed on another. So, what’s next?
Why this headline “Next garage startup idea: Artificial Intelligence”?
All big ideas started small. The garage idea is a symbolic representation of this concept. Now, garage stories stay behind today’s biggest technology companies and inventions.
Revolution begins now
We are just at the beginning of a major revolution.
You can be the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs of the future… Who knows?
The point is that AI brought many opportunities to all of us. To be able to change the future we have to wake up and adopt this technology. We need to invest our time to learn it and embrace it. As compared to before where just a few people were changing the world now we can build the future together.
There is an important fact that you should never miss. This is the fact that we live in an age where what you do today can have a massive global impact in 10 years. I don't know who will be the next big giant companies in 10 years, but I do know that artificial intelligence will be in the core of those companies.

Doesn’t matter who you are. This is a call for everyone, including me who wants to be in that AI plane and design a new future. I don’t know what you are working on right now and I don’t know what your goals are but I am asking you again.
