Stephen Hawking reminds us technology will kill us all and it’s all our fault …

“During an interview with The Times, Hawking repeated the concept that humanity faces existential threats from climate change, artificial intelligence and mass species extinction.

“He also warned that the human inclination towards aggression, linked to technological advancements, could mark our destruction (roughly in 1,000 years):”

“We spend a great deal of time studying history,” Hawking said, “which, let’s face it, is mostly the history of stupidity. So it’s a welcome change that people are studying instead the future of intelligence.”

“Two years ago, he told the BBC that the development of AI could “spell the end of the human race.” His concerns were shared by Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Steve Wozniak who, along with more than 8,000 leading researchers and scientists, signed a letter warning that artificial intelligence can potentially be more dangerous than nuclear weapons.”

We should listen to these people even if you don’t agree?
