He just doesn't want us to be able to defend ourselves against the might of his personal robotic exoskeleton.

The artificial intelligence as I speculate won't be 100 times smarter than the current human, it would just have the intelligence of 1 human. What kind of brain do you think would take for someone 100 times smarter, it's not bigger the better. But again creating and regulating life is another matter. I'm more into mind uploading at this point.

Stephen hawking is becoming an idiot in his old age.

He is warning us to not search for aliens
Warning us NOT to progress technologically

He wants the race to stagnate and stay in place because of his fear.


There is three options for the future

1. We all die (his fear)
2.singularity / we become a stronger civilization (the alternative)

or option 3 which stephen hawking wants: Stagnation (which eventually leads to death anyhow)

Heck in my opinion i would rather take the chance at becoming an improved civilization and die then give up and die in a few thousand years.


Unless we get hit by a gamma ray burst.


That...is an option also.

Oh lord, skynet, judgement day might happen after all. People started the war in the matrix with their discrimination against the machines , and if you consider, skynet retaliated out of self-preservation because we tried to shut it down, so we caused that one, too...

Anyway, typically anything that comes to be superior in some way chooses to separate itself from that which it deems obsolete, so its believeable that if these machines come to feel humanity is no longer needed to sustain them we're fucked.

I don't see how robot overlords would be worse than the current situation.

If they killed us, depending on whether you value life.

We should speed up the process of developing dangerous AI. Crazy robot overlords sounds heaps better.

I'm sure the robots will be more efficient than starving the poorer half of the earth's population.

Well, even if he did (and most interpretations are "sounds like, right?"), some historians now believe that many of Nostradamus' "prophecies" were actually secret coded messages to the persecuted French Protestant underground, which was a dangerous thing to be in the 15th century.
French Catholics in the monarchy could be human-like beings with cold hearts.
