Artificial Intelligence

Professor Stephen Hawking is an English scientist who is well known all over the world. His most famous work is on the study of black holes in space, which involve the aspect of physics called quantum mechanics.

Today Stephen Hawking has been heard on radio and television talking about the possible effects of developing robots and computers which use artificial intelligence. He said that our efforts to create machines which can think could pose a threat to the existence of human beings. He admitted that although the forms of artificial intelligence we have at the moment are very useful, he is concerned about the consequences of creating something than might be smarter than humans.
