His name is associated with the private Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It seeks to improve health care globally, reduce extreme poverty, and expand education and IT access opportunities in the US. In 2013 Bill himself donated $ 23 billion.
From 1995 to 2017 he was ranked first. He was then beaten by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.
At the age of 13, he created his first computer program on a General Electric computer.
He owns a luxury Porsche 959 from 1984.
At an auction in 1994, he acquired an incredibly valuable collection of Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Leicester science papers for $ 30.8 million.
As he says: “Leaving children a huge amount of money is not beneficial to them.” His net worth is about $ 100 billion.
Gates says that if he didn't work for Microsoft, he would probably be an artificial intelligence researcher. He shares the same ideas in science and technology as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking. For example, artificial intelligence is scary.
