More and more jobs are becoming less interesting as more people move into the technology sector, the head of the world leader in computer science said in an interview published Tuesday.
“People are doing a lot of things that have never been done before.
People are building cars, they’re working on AI and robotics.
All of these things require the same type of cognitive skills,” Stephen Hawking told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
Hawking, who is the world famous physicist, said he hoped technology could be used to help the elderly and disabled.
He added: “If we could do all these things that people used to do, we’d be able to solve the world in a very short period of time.”
It’s a very long time to be out in the world.
It’s like travelling around the world at night, because you can’t see much, and then you realise you’ve travelled around the whole world at one time.”‘
The only real challenge’Stephen Hawking, the world renowned physicist, says we are facing a “the only real problem” when it comes to AI technology.
But he cautioned against over-optimistic expectations of technology, which can sometimes be more complicated than it seems.”
If you’re a scientist and you work with people, and you’re asked to think about a computer problem and a problem involving a human, and all of a sudden it turns out that you’re right, that’s not an easy problem to solve,” Hawking said.”
But you should have confidence that if you get this right, it will solve that problem.
“Stephen Hawking is the co-author of the books “The Grand Design” and “The Theory of Everything”.
He is the author of more than 70 books including the best-selling “The Universe” trilogy.
Hawkins’ remarks come just days after President Donald Trump called on US leaders to take action against China over its use of technology to crack down on its citizens.
