Stephen Hawking’s brain synapses may be superior to most, at least in terms of IQ, but something it basically mis-wired in his logic circuit. AI and/or robots are not human life, nor will it ever be.   TN Editor

Professor Stephen Hawking has issued a chilling warning about the imminent rise of artificial intelligence.

During a new interview, Professor Hawking warned that AI will soon reach a level where it will be a ‘new form of life that will outperform humans.’

Professor Hawking even went so far as to say that AI may replace humans altogether, although he didn’t specify a timeline for his predictions.

Professor Hawking made the chilling comments during a recent interview with Wired.

He 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.’

During the interview, Professor Hawking also urged more people to take an interest in science, claiming that there would be ‘serious consequences’ if this didn’t happen.

He added that a new space programme should be developed, ‘with a view to eventually colonising suitable planets for human habitation.’

He said: ‘I believe we have reached the point of no return.

‘Our Earth is becoming too small for us, global population is increasing at an alarming rate and we are in danger of self-destructing.’

This guy is actually multiple actors pretending to be the “smartest brain in the world” being used to promote the materialist anti-God scientism of transhumanism, But where is the logic ? There is none! How can humans as the flawed creations of an insane creator whose handiwork needs to be completely replaced actually improve itself ?! We can’t… not by materiali or artificial external “science”. We as the flawed handiwork of that same flawed creation can only introduce more flaws as we move further away from Nature & Natural Law. Thus we can only introduce even more flawed versions of… Read more »

It seems you need to understand the logic of his theory, read more thisbhas nothing to do with God , he is a scientist,Inkinfly request you to read more about physics.

“AI and/or robots are not human life, nor will it ever be.  ⁃ TN Editor” Impossible? How can you make this blanket statement? What is your reasoning for claiming this to be true? Today what you say is no doubt true. But things can change far more rapidly than you might imagine. It seems that at some point “robots” not humans will improve “robots”, slowly at first but with exponential growth. It seems to me that, in this case, humans are merely a catalyst for the growth of a new species. We may be the first species to design their own… Read more »
