Bill Gates Worried About the Rise of The Machines

When the Flaming Lips sang about Yoshimi battling the bots I dont think they had the same imminent threat in mind as Microsoft’s co-founder and former CEO. Bill Gates is  worried about smart machines and the rise of the bots. In a reent Reddit #askmeanything regarding existential threat Mr Gates indicated

“I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence…” “First, the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that, though, the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.”

“I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned,”

He concluded.
