When James Cameron made his Terminator films back in the 90s, few of us believed that AI could actually take over the world. As it turns out, it could!
Of course, the real version of events is much different – there are no terminators in leather jackets roaming around hunting down little kids, neither is there a nuclear holocaust around the corner.
But you could end up jobless and without a way to make a living. That’s like a disaster in itself.
“These (robots) are things that are superhuman, and we think this will be in every industry, will probably replace 50 percent of human jobs, create a huge amount of wealth for mankind and wipe out poverty.”
These words were spoken by Kai-Fu Lee, a Chinese businessman who has worked for industry giants like Apple, Microsoft, and Google before starting his own Capital Venture Company. Obviously he knows a thing or two about computers and AI.
