Stephen Hawking (January 8th, 1942 – March 14th, 2018) was arguably one of the greatest minds to grace this planet. A theoretical physicist by profession, Stephen Hawking was best known for his work in the famous book, A Brief History Of Time. The British scientist was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a form of motor neurone disease. Following a tracheotomy, Hawking was able to speak using a synthesiser, a sound that has become iconic.
In the beginning, he received a computer program called the “Equalizer” from Walter Woltosz, CEO of Words Plus. However, with time, he lost the functioning of his hands and used his cheek muscles with a rate of [...]
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a popular topic of public conversation. It all started since SpaceX and Tesla chief Elon Musk, and Physicist Stephen Hawking warned against creating an AI system that can think on their own. Now the experts in the field of AI research are coming together to sign an open letter to pledge for the creation of AI that can be controlled by humans and is beneficial to our lives.
The letter was released by the Future of Life Institute (FLI) which is a volunteer-only research organization. It focuses on potential risks from the development of human-level Artificial Intelligence. The [...]
A few months back we saw Elon Musk disturbed when he was asked about artificial intelligence (AI.) Elon said that he believed that getting AI online would be akin the guy in the movies who summons the demon, sure he thinks he can control it but that rarely is the case. He also added that HAL 9000 would be a puppy dog next to what humans can create. Now world’s foremost physicist, Stephen Hawking is also pointing us towards the same direction.
Artificial Intelligence development is in full swing. Many major research centers are working towards creating a sentient computer which can observe the world as an intelligent [...]
