However, these are not the smartest as this CEO says a report that analyzed 100 American executives to understand who is the most intelligent of them all. Yeah, you read it right!
Demis Hassabis of Artificial Intelligence company DeepMind has defeated even Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg to rank in the top position of the list, according to a Preply report.
DeepMind is an e-learning platform that understands the way a person uses language as among the most clear indicators of intelligence. The platform also collates its report after understanding how the business leaders communicate.
The report mentioned how the platform’s dominance over a huge vocabulary, its adeptness at utilizing nuanced phrases, and the complexity of its sentence structures all show the path of thought and understanding’s depth. Such a mastery of language often is a testament to their brilliance and competence, added the report.
Understanding more about the report’s findings, it also mentioned how Demis Hassabis of DeepMind was a leader in the pack with an attractive score of 87.33.
“Hassabis, known for his dual expertise as an AI researcher and neuroscientist, has enriched his public discourses with a unique blend of knowledge,” the report commented. Demis was followed by Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone and famous investor Warren Buffett who managed Berkshire Hathaway.
Don’t underestimate the richest CEOs as one among them i.e., Jeff Bezos also ranked in the top five with a score of 71.00 round out. After all, Amazon has been transformed to a huge extent from just being an online bookstore in the worldwide e-commerce industry. His adaptability, vision, and insights that he has shared from his dialogues reflect his amazing leadership qualities, said the report.
How can Facebook be left behind? After all, Mark Zuckerberg was also listed with a ranking of number eight with a score of 69.67 while Elon Musk scored at number 16 with a record of 64.33.
The report also spoke about how intelligence is just not the only factor for any company’s leadership success. Regardless of their score, each leader on this list has shown that unique leadership abilities and working hard in their respective fields matter the most.
Raj Subramaniam of FedEx was also ranked in the list but with a low score of 31.33. However, that doesn’t underestimate his contributions to his company and the industry that he is coming from. Preply stated that FedEx remains at the forefront of global delivery and supply chain solutions, thanks to Subramaniam’s visionary approach that drives innovation.
