Technology Will Kill Us All! Stephen Hawking Claims
With the number of technological advancements the world has already have created, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking believes that the human race is likely to be facing doomsday if the current trend of runaway technological advances continues along with humankind's willingness to succumb to its own aggressive nature. The famed theoretical physicist has recently expressed his fears in terms of nuclear and biological welfare, not to mention the unmitigated global warming, and mass species extinctions that is seen to have the ability to land the species-killing blow. That said, Professor Stephen Hawking, being the world's leading boffin, King of the Brains, hypernerd, boffzilla, said that human behavior inevitably isn't keeping up with the risks posed by potentially destructive technological advances.
Doomsday Made Possible By Technology
Now more than ever, Inquisitr reports that Hawking has now been more active in warning that it is just but imperative that humanity would be able to retain its control over technology as the future provides more and more dangerous challenges. Hawking claims that the only hope that humanity may have is through its collective "logic and reason." In addition, he was quoted to have explained that since the beginning of civilization, aggression has been useful inasmuch as it has definite survival advantages, considering that it is hard-wired into our genes by Darwinian evolution.
Furthermore, in one of his statements reported by the International Business Times, Prof. Hawking continues to explain that technology has already advanced at such a pace that this aggression may destroy us all by nuclear or biological war. He said that it is vital for us to control this inherited instinct by our logic and reason. Additionally, the physicist reveals that because of the threat that technology has created, we need to be quicker to identify such threats and act before they get out of control.
Meanwhile, it was found that this is not the first time Hawking has warned about the future that particularly has something to do with artificial intelligence. Long before, Hawking believes that together with the benefits, AI will also bring certain dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many which could potentially bring great disruption to our economy. Ultimately, despite all these, Stephen Hawking still believes that humanity will be able to rise above the enormous challenges that our specie and planet is, and will be facing in the coming years, and it avoids destruction with an eventual move off planet Earth and into space.
