阅读原文、译文

Professor Stephen Hawking has warned that the creation of powerful artificial intelligence (AI) will be “either the best, or the worst thing, ever to happen to humanity”, and praised the creation of an academic institute dedicated to researching the future of intelligence as “crucial to the future of our civilization and our species”.

史蒂芬•霍金教授警告说,创造强大的人工智能(AI)将是“人类历史上出现的最好的,抑或是最糟的事”,并对创建一个致力于研究未来智能的学术机构给予了赞扬,称“(这)对我们的文明以及我们这个物种的未来至关重要”。

Hawking was speaking at the opening of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI) at Cambridge University, a multi-disciplinary institute that will attempt to tackle some of the open-ended questions raised by the rapid pace of development in AI research. “We spend a great deal of time studying history,” Hawking said, “which, let’s face it, is mostly the history of stupidity. So it’s a welcome change that people are studying instead the future of intelligence.”

霍金是在剑桥大学的莱弗休姆未来智能中心(LCFI)开幕式上发表的上述讲话。LCFI是一个跨学科机构,致力于解决AI研究快速发展过程中出现的开放式问题。“我们花了大量时间来研究历史,”霍金说到,“但实话实说,其大部分是愚蠢的历史。所以说,人们现在转而研究智能的未来是一个可喜的转变。”

While the world-renowned physicist has often been cautious about AI, raising concerns that humanity could be the architect of its own destruction if it creates a super-intelligence with a will of its own, he was also quick to highlight the positives that AI research can bring. “The potential benefits of creating intelligence are huge,” he said. “We cannot predict what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by AI. Perhaps with the tools of this new technological revolution, we will be able to undo some of the damage done to the natural world by the last one—industrialisation. And surely we will aim to finally eradicate disease and poverty. And every aspect of our lives will be transformed. In short, success in creating AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilisation.”

虽然这位举世闻名的物理学家对AI通常持谨慎态度,提醒人们关注“人类倘若创造出具有自身意志的智能,很可能会缔造自己的毁灭”,但他也敏锐地凸显了AI研究能带来的积极方面。“创造智能的潜在好处是巨大的,”他说。“我们无法预知当我们的大脑被AI放大可能会取得何种成就。或许借助这场新技术革命的工具,我们能够消解上一次革命——工业革命——对自然界造成的一些破坏。而且我们肯定会争取最终消灭疾病与贫穷。我们生活的方方面面都将发生巨变。简而言之,成功创造出AI可能是人类文明史上最为重大的而事件。”
