Artificial intelligence has the potential to end mankind, according to Stephen Hawking. The renowned physicist warns that if machines can match human capabilities, they may decide humans are no longer necessary. RT’s Ameera David discusses the future of robotics and the potential threat to our species with Josh Bongard, computer science professor at the University of Vermont.

This video will appear boring to some, however if you are patient and watch the whole presentation you will see what the expert presenter sees and, taken along with what we have already learned about weather manipulation, this video is an important addition to our archive. If you are a newbee to the subject you might first want to check out some of the earlier “Weather Control” posts in our archive. Link posted after this video.. . EDITOR

Scientists have long been dreaming about building a computer that would work like a brain. This is because a brain is far more energy-saving than a computer, it can learn by itself, and it doesn’t need any programming. Privatdozent [senior lecturer] Dr. Andy Thomas from Bielefeld University’s Faculty of Physics is experimenting with memristors – electronic microcomponents that imitate natural nerves.
Thomas and his colleagues proved that they could do this a year ago. They constructed a memristor that is capable of learning. Andy Thomas is now using his memristors as key components in a blueprint for an artificial brain. He will be presenting his results at the beginning of March in the print edition of the prestigious Journal of Physics published by the Institute of Physics in London. . . . Read Complete Report
