I completely agree with the fact that technology has been misused for a long time. According to Stephen Hawking "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race,". i agree because with misuse of very powerful technology, which already has problems, could have devastating effects in the future.

I do not think AI will end the human race. Mr. Hawkings cited this: Technological catastrophe " the idea that artificial intelligence (AI) will eventually outsmart us " was "a near certainty", he said, in the next 1,000 to 10,000 years. That is a far away assumption. According to Professor Bishop of the University of London there will always be a gap between AI and a real human mind. Computers are missing the human abilities as understanding and consciousness. We still will be in control over our technology.
