In June, Professor Stephen Hawking warned that AI, disguised as helpful digital assistants, could one day spell the end for mankind. But not everyone agrees – including Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. In a recent interview, Zuckerberg made a bid to reassure the world that AI is a force for good, and will destroy humanity. Mark Zuckerberg recently spoke to The Macro, saying that we should not see AI as a technological development which will bring about out species' demise A team from the University of Texas have created a new software that integrates humanoid robots and web-based tele-operation to provide humanoid robotic learners more access to the hardware. The software, named'Cloud-based Advanced Robotics Laboratory' (CARL), detects the movements of a human controller's body, mimicking the actions in the robot.

"Since civilisation began, aggression has been useful in as much as it has definite survival advantages," he said. "It is hardwired into our genes by Darwinian evolution.

Speaking at the launch of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (CFI) in Cambridge, science icon Stephen Hawking warned listeners about the future of artificial intelligence (AI) and humanity. "Success in creating AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization," Hawking acknowledged, noting the unprecedented and rapid development of AI technology in recent years, from self-driving cars to a computer playing (and defeating humans) in a game of Go. "But it could also be the last," he warned. This isn't the irrational ramblings of a technophobe. Hawking himself acknowledges the value of AI and what it could contribute to humanity's future, saying he believes artificial intelligence and this century's technological revolution will parallel the previous century's industrial one. "The potential benefits of creating intelligence are huge.
