The Independent is reporting…..
Stephen Hawking has warned that artificial intelligence could end the human race.
Machines that can think pose a threat to our very existence and “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race,” the theoretical physicist has told the BBC.
Hawking’s warning came in response to a question about the new typing technology used in the computer that allows him to speak, which predicts the words he is going to use. [source….]
Anyone that listens to The Kev Baker Show will know that for some time now we have been beating the drum about the dangers that lie in weight should an A.I. ever be allowed out into the real world, and when people like Hawkings is warning of the dangers, we really should sit up and take notice, NOW!
