Professor Stephen Hawking has warned that as technology learns to think for itself and adapt to its environment, humanity faces an uncertain future.

Who knows what will happen!
Interesting question. The plot of a lot of sci fi stories goes:
1. Humans create a thing (artificial intelligence, genetically engineered super soldier, super strong alien/human hybrid...)
2. Humans are mean to the thing.
3. The thing revolts and destroys humanity.

Maybe if we didn't do step 2 we'd be okay.
I totally respect this man.
Having said that....I honestly have No idea?

He is One of the Worlds smartest people., so for me to go the opposite way, would show I believe I have a better understanding.

LOL I wouldn't do that.....
Interesting that Hawking has said that. I've seen science fiction movies about this sort of thing, but I don't really know much about how likely it is.
I had the exact same question in the queue! Great minds :)
I don't agree with Prof Hawking. I think the human race has demonstrated an astonishing ability to adapt and survive and we will carry on in one way or another ad infinitum.... though as a philosopher I would argue that as AI is being developed by human beings, it is in a very real sense human. So if AI becomes the dominant "species" or even the only one in the future, that is in a way part of the human race and so the survival of our race, even if just in ways of thinking rather than flash and blood, has been ensured.

not flash!
Great minds. ;) Interesting thoughts there VerityG.
