The leading minds on the cutting edge of AI research think that machines with human-level intelligence will likely be realized by the year 2100. Beyond this, artificial intelligences that far outstrip human intelligence would rapidly be created by the human-level AIs. This vastly superhuman AI will result from an “intelligence explosion.” And if they’re not designed or managed correctly, some argue, these AI may present a serious threat to humanity.
