Michio Kaku: How to Stop Robots From Killing Us
Even if computer technology continues to double every 18 monthsâwhich is doubtfulâwe could put a chip in robots’ brains to shut them off if they start to get murderous.
Question: Do you believe in the coming singularity? Michio Kaku: There was a conference out of Sylmar that made headlines around the world. The brightest minds of artificial intelligence converged onto Sylmar and a reporter asked them a question” “When will this fabled singularity take place? When will the machines take over? When will machines become smarter than us?”
Well the answer was quite interesting. Among the top people assembled in one place the answers were anything from 20 years in the future to 1,000 years in the futureâwith some AI experts saying never. Some people put it at 2029. They even give you an exact date. 2029, that’s going to be the moment of truth that one day a robot will wake up, wake up in the laboratory, look around and say, “I am aware.” “I’m just as smart as you.” “In fact, I could be even smarter if I put a few more chips in my brain.”
