Clad in a black outfit that makes him looks like a warrior from the future, the Chinese-American singer-songwriter Lee Hom Wang unveiled two new tracks from his forthcoming album titled A.I. Love at a news conference in Beijing recently.

"It's been two and a half years since I released my last album and this new album is my most important album in 10 years," Wang says.

"I'd been looking for a right theme for it, and artificial intelligence has become a hot topic thanks to the achievements of the big computing giants during the past few years," he explains.

During the past four years, Wang has been invited to attend the business leaders meeting in Sun Valley, in Idaho, the United States, which enabled him to meet leading tech figures, such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, and acquire the latest information about artificial intelligence.

"Artificial intelligence is going to dramatically change the way everybody works in both positive and negative ways. Will artificial intelligence lead to job losses? Will artificial intelligence take the place of human beings? These are the kind of questions I have been thinking about," Wang says, adding that one of his friends, the Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk co-founded a nonprofit artificial intelligence research company with the aim of developing safe artificial intelligence and ensuring that artificial intelligence's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible.
