Stephen Hawking an outstanding cosmologist and professor within the University of Cambridge made some alarming warnings: "Computers will overtake humans with AI at some within the next 100 years. When that happens, we need to make sure the computers have goals aligned with ours."
Hawking, who signed an open letter alongside Elon Musk earlier this year warning artificial intelligence development should not go on uncontrolled, added: "Our future is a race between the growing power of technology and the wisdom with which we use it."
