FLI catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality, but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources.

As Stephen Hawking said, “Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last."

On a bright fall day last year off the coast of Southern California, an Air Force B-1 bomber launched an experimental missile that may herald the future of warfare.
Initially, pilots aboard the plane directed the missile, but halfway to its destination, it severed communication with its operators. Alone, without human oversight, the missile decided which of three ships to attack, dropping to just above the sea surface and striking a 260-foot unmanned freighter.
Warfare is increasingly guided by software. Today, armed drones can be operated by remote pilots peering into video screens thousands of miles from the battlefield. But now, some scientists say, arms makers have crossed into troubling territory: They are developing weapons that rely on artificial intelligence, not human instruction, to decide what to target and whom to kill.
As these weapons become smarter and nimbler, critics fear they will become increasingly difficult for humans to control — or to defend against. And while pinpoint accuracy could save civilian lives, critics fear weapons without human oversight could make war more likely, as easy as flipping a switch. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/12/science/weapons-directed-by-robots-not-humans-raise-ethical-questions.html?_r=2
Weapons that rely on artificial intelligence to decide what to target could become increasingly difficult to control, critics warn.

People commenting on the AI paranoia frustratingly fail to highlight how technology reduces scarcity, thus there will never be any need for a human versus super-intelligence conflict.

The point is technology increases efficiency, it increases our access to resources. For example NASA estimates the asteroid belt, one part of our solar system, can support life and habit for ten quadrillion people! Our solar system is utterly tiny compared to the scale of the universe.

The technology able to create super-intelligence will easily allow machines access to the limitless resources of Space; therefore the easy option will be to disappear into Space instead of having a pretty war with silly and intellectually puny humans, on an utterly insignificant planet.

AI won't destroy humans, they will simply laugh at your idiocy (that is if you are the idiotic type of human who fears AI).

The Atlantic (30 Jan 2015) wrote: "Failing to take seriously the potential for a world in which smart machines run amok could make artificial intelligence more dangerous to humanity than nuclear weapons, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said."

Bill Gates says he's concerned about the decisions machines of the near future will make once they outsmart humans.
