AI: Will digital intelligence replace biological intelligence?

Prof. Geoffrey Hinton - "Will digital intelligence replace biological intelligence?" Romanes Lecture - YouTube

Professor Geoffrey Hinton, CC, FRS, FRSC, the ‘Godfather of AI’, delivered Oxford's annual Romanes Lecture at the Sheldonian Theatre on Monday, 19 February 2024. 

The public lecture entitled ‘Will digital intelligence replace biological intelligence?’ discussed the dangers of artificial intelligence (AI) and how to ensure it does not take control of humans, and consequently, wipe out humanity. He said that the fact that digital intelligence is immortal and does not evolve should make it less susceptible to religion and wars, but ‘if a digital super-intelligence ever wanted to take control it is unlikely that we could stop it,’ he added.
