Louis Del Monte predicts human obsolescence that by 2045

IN JUST 30 years time, the top species on Earth will no longer be humans. That is the chilling warning from physicist Louis Del Monte who believes that new artificial intelligence (AI) technology will threaten the survival of humankind.

In a world where machines have become part of the way we live, where already artificial limbs replace our own, Del Monte believes we will become cyborgs — part human and part machine.

Our reliance on machines is increasing more than ever as they improve productivity, make breakthroughs in medical technology and improve our quality of life.

But Del Monte is concerned that the future may come down to man versus machine, when machines become more intelligent than humans, and that machines, like robots, may view humans as unpredictable and dangerous.

Speaking to Business Insider , Del Monte said: “Today there’s no legislation regarding how much intelligence a machine can have, how interconnected it can be. If that continues, look at the exponential trend. We will reach the singularity in the time frame most experts predict. From that point on you’re going to see that the top species will no longer be humans, but machines.”

The Inevitable march.

Mankind's destiny is not to conquer the stars but the build the species that will...

@ben
or they will see the way we have treated horses and dogs (considering how reliant we were on them in the past).... Humans really do suck.
Machines will probably do better.

Plus the practical aspects of interplanetary travel become much easier for machines.  Neutral
