Stephen Hawking has warned us on countless occasions. Like how humans are actively pursuing Artificial Intelligence (AI) without caution which may end the course of humanity in the future.
What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?
Artificial Intelligence is an intelligence exhibited by machines. Basically, it is the study of “intelligent agents,” any device which recognizes its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. The central goals of AI research include knowledge, planning, reasoning, learning, communication and the ability to move and manipulate objects.
Hawking believes that the ongoing AI race will ultimately escort humans into a stage when machines will become more intelligent than humans. Last year, in an interview with Larry King on the Larry King talk show, he said that he strongly believes that such inventions are inspired by human evils.
He stated that greediness and stupidity are the biggest threats to humanity. These two evils will ultimately drive humans into extinction. There has been a massive air pollution problem in the last six years.
He added: “We certainly have not become less greedy or less stupid. The population has grown by half a billion since our last meeting, with no end in sight. At this rate, it will be eleven billion by 2100. Air pollution has increased over the past five years. More than 80% of inhabitants of urban areas are exposed to unsafe levels of air pollution.”
Stephen William Hawking is a theoretical physicist, author, cosmologist and the director of research at the Centre of Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. He is an honorary fellow of Royal Society of Arts, a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
