Is Artificial SuperIntelligence a threat to the human race?

April 22, 2018


Stephen Hawking, 75th birthday public symposium at Lady Mitchell Hall, Cambridge, UK (July 2, 2017).

“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate… Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”

(BBC interview, December 2014)
