Stephen Hawking Says Robots Will Be Smarter Than Humans Within 100 Years

 

The intelligence of machines and controllability of an Artificial intelligence has been something that Sci-Fi and fans and writers have been debating for many year, but when one of the world's leading minds tells us to be concerned about it I wonder why we aren't.

Professor Stephen Hawking when speaking at London's Zeitgeit conference said that robots/computers will be smarter than humans within the next 100 years, and that artificial intelligence could spell out an end for humanity.

Here is what Professor Stephen Hawking had to say at the conference:

 

"Computers will overtake humans with AI at some within the next 100 years. When that happens, we need to make sure the computers have goals aligned with ours. Our future is a race between the growing power of technology and the wisdom with which we use it."

 

"Our AI systems must do what we want them to do. Creating AI would be the biggest event in human history, [but] unfortunately, it might also be the last."

Alongside Elon Musk and many others Stephen Hawking believes that the development of an AI should not go unregulated/ uncontrolled, as their ability to benefit or damage humanity is something that must be considered.  

The big question is not who controls an AI, but rather can an AI be controlled? As computers continue to become more and more powerful this question will become a much more pertinent one and regulatory bodies will need to account for this.

He also quoted that we need to colonise space ASAP or we will not have a future. I believe him on both counts.Quote

yup, already machines are slowly taking over all human tasks, it wouldn't be weird to see them replace humans soon with much more efficient robots.

Also to mention above, 100% agree, we either need to dedicate ourselves to earth, stop polution, wars etc. and live for greater good of race or go full on out into space exploration and colonization, eventually countires will just have their own planets and would reach almost a state of peace depending on planet.Quote

All this so-called fear for AI stems from the belief that we actually will manage to create artificial intelligence. Which we haven't yet and we might not even get close to within the next 100 years. I have a feeling that many people mistake VI for AI (virtual intelligence). VI isn't intelligent, it's just simulated. There's a big difference.

I'm not afraid of any of it. Right now it's just old wifes tales to me, like Y2K would bring us back to the stone age.Quote
