Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. We cannot quite know what will happen if a machine exceeds our own intelligence, so we can't know if we'll be infinitely helped by it, or ignored by it and sidelined, or conceivably destroyed by it.", Interview with BBC, Dec 2 2014, [URL]

Stephen Hawking: "With genetic engineering, we will be able to increase the complexity of our DNA, and improve the human race. But it will be a slow process, because one will have to wait about 18 years to see the effect of changes to the genetic code.", Interview by Roger Highfield, 18 Oct 2001, [URL]
