The world’s smartest physicist claims that Aliens, Robots and Nuclear Wars are currently the 3 major threats to humanity and have the potential to destroy the world within 100 years. Stephen has already raised the red flag in the name of technology and believes that we underestimate the power of artificial intelligence.
THERE IS NOT MUCH CHANCE FOR THE HUMAN RACE
“The real risk with AI isn’t malice but competence. A super intelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing it’s goals, and if those goals aren’t aligned with ours, we’re in trouble,” said Hawking. He further explained that if machines become too clever, they’ll develop the ability to engineer themselves and become far more smarter than us – their intelligence will exceed ours more than our exceeds that of snails.
Now coming towards the topic of aliens, Stephen revealed something extremely unsettling: “If the government is covering up knowledge of aliens, they are doing a better job of it than they are doing anything else.” Does this mean that aliens have actually been discovered and they exist somewhere in the universe?
Or maybe they have already contacted the government and visited earth for negotiations! In the past there have been several sightings of UFOs and unworldly creatures; obviously they were all called false and misleading.
Now it gets me wondering that there could be some truth to all of that. Then again Stephen could just be messing with our heads… The conclusion is that if aliens and robots fail to outsmart us, we humans will let nuclear wars be the end of us! “Unless we can use our intelligence to control our aggression, there is not much chance for the human race,” stated Hawking
