If asked to predict the most significant occurrence in the future of humans, the best answer would be the advent of superintelligent artificial intelligence (AI). Superintelligent AI might help human beings avert climate disaster, cure all diseases, and much more. Superintelligent AI might also usher in the end of human history. The quest for AI has always been for increasingly intelligent machines. University of California, Berkeley, computer science professor Stuart Russell suggests that people should instead generate intelligent machines that benefit human life.
