TOKYO (Reuters) - SoftBank Group CEO Masayoshi Son said on Friday that the group's mission was to help in humanity's progress by realising artificial super intelligence, which he said would exceed human capabilities by a factor of 10,000.

"SoftBank Group has done many things until now that have all been warm up for my great dream to realise artificial intelligence," Son told shareholders at the group's annual general meeting.
