40,000 Years of Human-Dominated History is About to End

Machine intelligence is improving rapidly, to the point that the scientist of the future may not even be human. In fact, in more and more fields, learning machines are already outperforming humans.

Artificial intelligence expert J├╝rgen Schmidhuber, professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Lugano, isn’t able to predict the future accurately, but he explains how machines are getting creative, why 40,000 years of Homo sapiens-dominated history are about to end soon, leading to a world of unfathomable complexity and how we can try to make the best of what lies ahead.
