Here you can read more about Artificial Intelligence (AI), the artificial intelligence that continues to improve itself with Big Data, algorithms and Machine Learning. Core questions about AI are: how long will it take for AI to be as smart as us? How much infinitely smarter than us can AI become? How do we prevent AI from replacing us? What role do we give AI in our society? Can an AI independently decide to end a human's life in a war situation? One of the biggest dangers cited by the likes of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and the late Professor Stephen Hawkings is that AI is unknowingly getting smarter than humans, and going beyond that by an infinite factor. All the protections we have devised can be overridden by an infinitely smarter intelligence. On the contrary, proponents say that such intelligence can create the solution for everything: the end of diseases, space travel and even eternal life.
