Stephen Hawking Warns AI Could “Replace Humans Altogether”: Stephen Hawking, the renowned 75-year-old astrophysicist had just warned the world about the impacts that robots will have on humanity. According to Stephen Hawking, a rapid development of artificial intelligence could pose a threat to humanity.
Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking believes that time may come when machines and robots will completely replace humans. During an interview with Wired magazine, Stephen Hawking said “I fear that AI may replace humans altogether”
“If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that improves and replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans.”
According to Hawking, in search of efficiency, robots may want to get rid of people. Even if this does not happen, people run the risk of destroying themselves.
“Our Earth is becoming too small for us, global population is increasing at an alarming rate and we are in danger of self-destructing.” Stephen Hawking warned the world.
If we look around, the first robot citizen, Sophia had already told that it will “Destroy Humans”. So, the rapid development of artificial intelligence could pose a danger to humanity.
