Will artificial intelligence destroy humanity?

A new algorithm has been discovered that allows computers to learn like we do. A research team has just discovered a new algorithm that allows computers to learn in the same way humans do — and for people like physicist Stephen Hawking, that’s potentially a problem for humans down the road. As we recently reported, scientists created the Bayesian Program Learning framework, which teaches computers to both identify and reproduce handwritten characters using one example of those characters. In a test, both computers and humans were asked to produce the letter after seeing it once, and a human panel of judges couldn’t tell the difference between a human’s reproductions and a computers. It’s an exciting breakthrough that could have major ramifications for how computers assist humans in tasks that would…
