Just like with 98% of the human and chimp Dna are the same and with only 2% change in the Dna we posses such great powers than Chimp then imagine what are the possibilities of having a life form slightly different than that of ours. Intelligent life may be in it’s “very young” stage in the observable Universe. Its 200 billion galaxies show a clear potential to continue on as we see them today for hundreds of billions of years, if not much longer. Because planets and life are so young in our Universe, says Harvard’s Dimitar Sasselov, perhaps “the human species are not late comers to the party. We may be among the early ones.” That may explain why we see no evidence of “them” and may go a long way to explaining the famous Fermi Paradox, which asks if there’s advanced intelligent life in the Universe, where are they? Why haven’t we discovered any evidence of their existence?The story of the Universe according to Sasselov in is new study, The Life of Super-Earths, looks like this: generations of stars made enough iron and oxygen, silicon and carbon, and all the other elements from the original hydrogen and helium about 13 billion years ago to be able to form the Earth we [More]
During the in-studio portion of our episode, “The Future of Humanity with Elon Musk,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye and co-host Chuck Nice discussed artificial intelligence and Musk’s concern that super-intelligent robots will turn us into their pets. They look at different levels of artificial intelligence: artificial narrow intelligence, artificial general intelligence (like IBM’s Watson), and artificial super intelligence, where the real concerns lie. Find out why Neil and Bill are not worried by doomsday scenarios highlighted in movies like “The Terminator,” “Colossus: The Forbin Project,” and “War Games,” or by the changes embodied in Ray Kurzweil’s concept of “The Singularity.” This “Behind the Scenes” video was shot during the recording of our episode, ” The Future of Humanity with Elon Musk.” If you’d like to listen to the full podcast, click here: Support us on Patreon: Subscribe to StarTalk: Follow StarTalk: Twitter: Facebook: Instagram: About StarTalk: Science meets pop culture on StarTalk!
