Today is Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Before his death in March, Stephen Hawking was vocal about his hesitation with artificial intelligence and the capacity of genetic engineering. All of this, and more, is covered in Hawking’s posthumous release of Brief Answers to the Big Questions

Somewhat of a follow-up to 1988’s A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes, the book follows the physicist’s final musings and thoughts. The best-selling author bemuses the thought of an artificially created “superhuman” in an excerpt of the book. With an accompanying article by the Sunday Times, Hawking exudes his fear of the affluent using their financial power in regard to AI. 

Going on to answer other questions such as the lifespan of Earth, the concept of God and more, Hawking gives just a taste of his knowledge in the book. The book is available on Amazon, Penguin Random House, as well as most bookstores.
