Artificial intelligence can “surpass human intellect, lead to destruction”

Here is a report that touches on how machine intelligence can be apocalyptic for the universe: http://venturebeat.com/2014/12/23/apocalypse-or-golden-age-what-machine-intelligence-will-do-to-us/

Even astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has warned of the dangers posed by developing human-like intelligence in computer systems.

The message is simple — anything that is effective at doing good is also effective at doing evil. Imagine our fate if machines decide that the world will become a better place if the necks of all human beings are broken.

If you think it sounds far-fetched, read the above report written by Patrick Ehlen, is a cognitive scientist.
