    Stephen Hawking on the dangers of AI, old article but still relevant - ZDnet

    "In contrast with our intellect, computers double their performance every 18 months," says Hawking. "So the danger is real that they could develop intelligence and take over the world."

    The best-selling author of A Brief History of Time says "we should follow this road [of genetic engineering] if we want biological systems to remain superior to electronic ones."

    Hawking is a genius but he has starting to have strange thoughts. I wonder if he is losing it. Not just this quote but some of his other statements too.
