Bill Gates says coronavirus will forever alter work, but face-to-face school is ‘totally irreplaceable’

Bill Gates

Bill Gates’ 1995 book “The Road Ahead” forecast the way personal computing and the internet would change everything about life as we knew it. On Wednesday, the Microsoft co-founder was asked during a live Q & A on LinkedIn whether the coronavirus pandemic will forever change how we operate and deal with each other.

In a “This is Working” chat with LinkedIn Editor in Chief Daniel Roth, Gates said we’ve all been forced, in an unnatural way, to push things into a digital form. And while his prediction is that some forms of work may never go back to “normal,” education is something that should take place in person.
