Hawkings on the Danger of AI

Posted 2 Sep 2001 at 15:50 UTC by steve Share This

In a recent interview with Focus, a German magazine, Stephen Hawking talks about human and artificial intelligence. Hawkings believes humans must retain their intelligence lead over AI even if it means modifying the human race through genetic engineering or turning humans into cyborgs.
