Intelligent Design: Artificial Intelligence as a New Species, Roman Yampolskiy, Computer Science Professor

Professor Roman Yampolskiy, Founding Director of the University of Louisville's Cybersecurity Laboratory, explains how artificial intelligence (AI) will soon surpass humans as the dominant form of intelligence on Earth, in effect becoming the world's first inorganic species. His new take on "intelligent design" takes us beyond Charles Darwin's wildest dreams as evolution becomes a conscious choice by an entity that is quickly on its way towards gaining consciousness. According to Yampolskiy, our society is rapidly approaching a convergence of science fiction and science.
