Stephen Hawking Warnings for the Future

Stephen Hawking Warnings for the Future

Stephen Hawking, cosmologist, professor, physicist, scientists and in other word “Genius”, is one of the best known and famous theoretical physicist of his time. He passed away on Wednesday at the age of 76. On the word of his family he died at his home in Cambridge. Writing his book “A Brief History of Time” published in 1988 brought him fame and glory.
Before his death the physicist predicted some warnings for the future that you should know. With the word of professor our warnings about future are the fall of asteroid, excessive population growth, threat of epidemics, nuclear or biological war and last but not list Artificial Intelligence (AI).
In late 2016, he said: “Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years.” He was confident that humans would spread out into the cosmos by that time (given the chance), but added: “We will not establish self-sustaining colonies in space for at least the next hundred years, so we have to be very careful in this period.” After more recent events, Stephen  Hawking described President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon the Paris Climate Agreement as “the most serious and wrong decision on climate this world has seen.”
“We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid,” Hawking said.
Concerns about Artificial Intelligent
According to him in recent years, his concerns were often consumed by the rise of artificial intelligence. “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race” he claimed. The primitive forms of artificial intelligence developed so far had already proved very useful; indeed, the tech he used to communicate incorporated a basic form of AI.
“Success in creating effective AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don’t know” Stephen Hawking said late last year.
