The world famous physicist, 75, said artificial intelligence is in danger of surpassing human intelligence and wiping out our species.
He believes modern technology proves that we are capable of designing robots whose intelligence towers above our own.
He told Wired Magazine: “I fear that AI may replace humans altogether.
“This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans”
“If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI that improves and replicates itself.
“This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans.”
He also warned that humans are in deep trouble due to globalisation and the affects are irreversible.
He added “I believe we have reached the point of no return.
“Our Earth is becoming too small for us, global population is increasing at an alarming rate and we are in danger of self-destructing.”
His comments follow a year in which sex robots have sky rocketed in popularity and are in danger of replacing human intimacy.
