With the rise of people wanting to make A.I. bigger and better, the higher risk of climate change, and many other natural disasters that may occur, Stephen Hawking has set a due date for when we should colonize another planet. During his speech he told people that Earth’s end may be due to humanity, which will use the planet’s natural resources at a faster and faster rate. Hawking also told his opinion on A.I. and what would happen if it gets out of control. Hawking told BBC in a 2014 interview, “ I think the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.This could be bad for humanity either way, because what happens when we colonize the new planet?
Since 2009, NASA has been hunting for Earth-like planets with the potential for colonization. With this extensive research we could colonize a new planet, but if we just focus on the claim that Hawking has made, this could lead to us not spending our money on things that matter to the planet.
