Once this breakthrough happens, artificial intelligence will be smarter than humans

A24How long until Ex Machina becomes reality? There’s no way of knowing when the machines will take over, but scientists have a prediction about the breakthrough that would have to occur in order for that to happen: the development of an artificial intelligence (AI) system that rivals our own brains. There’s an interesting reason why such a system would almost certainly overtake human intelligence and precipitate the rise of machines than are smarter than us — not just equally smart. As director of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI), Seth Shostak ends up thinking a lot about AI. He predicts we’ll find AI in the universe before we will be able to find the biological beings that might have created it, since computers and various devices can travel great distances much more easily than living…
