Will Artificial Intelligence really become a threat to humanity? Access AI


The highly contentious and arguably irresponsible comments from Alibaba founder Jack Ma around AI and its likelihood of creating athird World War– will have done little to inspire confidence in those that harbour fears around the subject of intelligent machines. For some, the two words placed together spark a sense of dread, trepidation or even fear. For others, it represents the beginning of an exciting new digital world with untold benefits and opportunities. Unfortunately, however, it's often the former,which seems to seep more into people's consciousness. It's perhaps then of little surprise that in recent survey by the British Science Association (BSA) that 36% of respondents believe that AI will eventually takeover or destroy humanity.
