The Artilect WarWE MAY be on the verge of creating a race of beings that will destroy us.

That’s the warning of artificial intelligence (AI) researcher Dr. Hugo de Garis, author of The Artilect War: Cosmists Vs. Terrans: A Bitter Controversy Concerning Whether Humanity Should Build Godlike Massively Intelligent Machines.  Dr. de Garis believes that the 21st century’s global politics will be dominated by the “species dominance” issue — in other words, the debate over whether we should or should not build these artilects (artificial intellects).

It’s not a happy prospect.  Dr. de Garis has coined the term “gigadeath” to describe the horrific and potentially terminal consequences of the Artilect War.

Note: Video from this interview will be incorporated into a forthcoming documentary from Tom Horn on the topic of transhumanism and AI.
