This should not surprise you: Stephen Hawking says computers will be more intelligent than we homo sapiens neanderthals within the next century. In the article, Hawking says we should make sure these computers we are making should have "goals aligned with ours."

This is disappointing. I was really enjoying my Jetsons existence.

The day a computer can "compute" a piece of food out of thin air, Iowa will really be screwed. Until the, I think our breadbasket status is economically safe. Wonder if Hawking agrees.
