“Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” ~Nick Bostrom

“Much of what we do with machine learning happens beneath the surface. Machine learning drives our algorithms for demand forecasting, product search ranking, product and deals recommendations, merchandising placements, fraud detection, translations, and much more. Though less visible, much of the impact of machine learning will be of this type — quietly but meaningfully improving core operations.” ~Jeff Bezos

“The potential benefits of artificial intelligence are huge, so are the dangers.” ~Dave Waters

“Everything that civilisation has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this intelligence is magnified by the tools that AI may provide, but the eradication of war, disease, and poverty would be high on anyone’s list. Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last.”
~Stephen Hawking

“In the long term, artificial intelligence and automation are going to be taking over so much of what gives humans a feeling of purpose.” ~Matt Bellamy

“The purest case of an intelligence explosion would be an Artificial Intelligence rewriting its own source code. The key idea is that if you can improve intelligence even a little, the process accelerates. It’s a tipping point. Like trying to balance a pen on one end – as soon as it tilts even a little, it quickly falls the rest of the way.” ~Eliezer Yudkowsky

“We are entering a new world. The technologies of machine learning, speech recognition, and natural language understanding are reaching a nexus of capability. The end result is that we’ll soon have artificially intelligent assistants to help us in every aspect of our lives.” ~Amy Stapleton

“Humans should be worried about the threat posed by artificial intelligence.” ~Bill Gates

“The internet will disappear. There will be so many IP addresses, so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with, that you won’t even sense it. It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.z” ~Eric Schmidt

“I predict that, because of artificial intelligence and its ability to automate certain tasks that in the past were impossible to automate, not only will we have a much wealthier civilization, but the quality of work will go up very significantly and a higher fraction of people will have callings and careers relative to today.” ~Jeff Bezos

“By the time we get to the 2040s, we’ll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that’s singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter.” ~Ray Kurzweil

“I am telling you, the world’s first trillionaires are going to come from somebody who masters AI and all its derivatives,and applies it in ways we never thought of.” ~Mark Cuban

“There are lots of examples of routine, middle-skilled jobs that involve relatively structured tasks, and those are the jobs that are being eliminated the fastest. Those kinds of jobs are easier for our friends in the artificial intelligence community to design robots to handle them. They could be software robots; they could be physical robots.” ~Erik Brynjolfsson

“Predicting the future isn’t magic, it’s artificial intelligence.” ~Dave Waters

“If you had all of the world’s information directly attached to your brain, or an artificial brain that was smarter than your brain, you’d be better off.” ~Sergey Brin

“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” ~Stephen Hawking

“Machine learning is a game changer for supply chain automation.”

“I think people need to understand that deep learning is making a lot of things, behind-the-scenes, much better. Deep learning is already working in Google search, and in image search; it allows you to image search a term like “hug.”” ~Geoffrey Hinton

“In a few years artificial intelligence virtual assistants will be as common as the smart phone.” ~Dave Waters

“Every serious technology company now has an Artificial Intelligence team in place. These companies are investing millions into intelligent systems for situation assessment, prediction analysis, learning-based recognition systems, conversational interfaces, and recommendation engines.

“There is no reason and no way that a human mind can keep up with an artificial intelligence machine by 2035.” ~Gray Scott

“As a data scientist, I can predict what is likely to happen, but I cannot explain why it is going to happen. I can predict when someone is likely to attrite, or respond to a promotion, or commit fraud, or pick the pink button over the blue button, but I cannot tell you why that’s going to happen. And I believe that the inability to explain why something is going to happen is why I struggle to call ‘data science’ a science.” ~Bill Schmarzo

“What AI and machine learning allows you to do is find the needle in the haystack.” ~Bob Work

“By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.” ~Eliezer Yudkowsky

“Whenever I hear people saying AI is going to hurt people in the future I think, technology can generally always be used for good and bad and you need to be careful about how you build it. If you’re arguing against AI, then you’re arguing against safer cars that aren’t going to have accidents, and you’re arguing against being able to better diagnose people when they’re sick.” ~Mark Zuckerberg

“What’s behind the driverless cars? Artificial Intelligence, or more specifically Deep Learning.” ~Dave Waters 

“The Three Laws of Robotics: 1: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm; 2: A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law; 3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law; The Zeroth Law: A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.” ~Isaac Asimov
