World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking recently expressed concern over the rise of artificial intelligence, suggesting the ever-evolving class of technology could soon take over the human race.
Hawking is no stranger to voicing unsettling predictions about humanity’s dwindling chances for survival. As he in an interview with Wired magazine, as reported by Cambridge News:
“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.”
Hawking has previously sounded the alarm on artificial intelligence. Earlier this year, he spoke on a panel with the likes of Elon Musk, Sam Harris, and Bill Gates to warn that AI could cause humans to go extinct.
