story imageNoted and well-respected theoretical physicist Steven Hawking discusses the potential of advanced artificial intelligence in a recent article published in The Independent. He frames the discussion in terms of "incalculable benefits and risks." Although even the original article is fairly superficial, it raises a good point for discussion: how can we learn to understand and prepare for the implications of this technology today? And who are the thought leaders who are asking (and answering) the right questions about this powerful science ?

In addition to the above those involved seem fixated on viewing their work as hyper-deterministic "machines" instead of beings .
Yes, since any advanced AI must be a self-learning system, only a limited control can be had over its evolution.
