SEATTLE — The founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, took the time to host an “Ask Me Anything” session on the social media site “Reddit” on Tuesday.

One user asked Gates if he is concerned about artificial intelligence. Gates said he hasn’t seen any concrete proposals on how to regulate the technology, but he believes it is something that should be discussed.

Another user asked Gates if, considering his vast wealth, he would pick up $40,000 if he found it on the sidewalk.

The multibillionaire said he would, since the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation can basically save a life for every $1,000.

There are several more and interesting exchanges.
