Yes, warns Stephen Hawking, speaking at the Starmus festival, who said, ‘I don’t think advances in artificial intelligence will necessarily be benign.’
Hawking isn’t keen on robots generally – last year he said that artificial intelligence ‘could spell the end of the human race.’
Professor Hawking warned, ‘Once machines reach a critical stage of being able to evolve themselves we cannot predict whether their goals will be the same as ours.’
‘Artificial intelligence has the potential to evolve faster than the human race.’
