He went on to say that the AI could end up with the human race, which has generated a lot of controversy today. According to Hawking, we will face a «intelligence explosion» that would leave us far behind machines, in terms of cognitive ability.
It is tempting to see highly intelligent machines as a thing of nature. Science fiction, but this would be a serious mistake, Hawking explained. The author of ‘Brief history of time’ warned about the danger of not taking the revolution that AI is bringing seriously.
In fact, the irruption of this technology is already having a significant impact on various work area for working in large corporations such as IBM, who has recently suggested that the automation of administrative tasks It could mean drastically reducing your staff.
