- Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has warned that if we continue to build computers to take care of everything, they’ll eventually think faster than humans and “take over”.
- Steve mused about whether our advancements in technology will cause us “to be the Gods” or the “ants that get stepped on”.
- Steve’s comments directly reference similar warnings made by Stephen Hawking and Tesla boss Elon Musk about the threat humanity faces from AI, in which they advised that research into the rewards of AI should be matched by research into the potential damage it could wreak (such as the loss of jobs).
- Elon previously warned that computers will eventually become such good drivers that humans will be “too dangerous” to put behind the wheel.

Steve Wozniak is one our lecturers at UTS, Sydney. I agree, the British Dept. of Defence – has invested in human robots, so has Boston. So be nice to your machines…
