If you are smart enough and have access to the internet, there are many possibilities to become very powerful or very rich. Think of the success stories of the founders of Google and Facebook. Desperate people, for example an entrepreneur on the verge of bankruptcy, will therefore in the near future be able to choose to create an artificial intelligence that is smarter than the smartest human being. This in the hope that this artificial intelligence will prove to be the lifesaver. But what if creation turns out to be stronger than the creator, which is by definition the case with advanced AI?
In this movie.The Awareness, a little less than twenty minutes, this thought is worked out. Three highly intelligent people who have earned their spurs in IT and science, Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, have not hidden their concerns about the emergence of strong AI. Beings smarter than humans are by definition uncontrollable for us. Yet these creatures will come. This is inevitable given the advancement of information technology. We have about ten years left to prepare for this very vital issue. Hopefully we have the right answer, and we don't end up as humanity in dyustopian SF films like the Terminator series. Will we be able to come up with the equivalent of Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics?
