Stephen Hawking is all the rage because of the new film. This week we’re going to watch a short BBC interview from December. The beginning of the interview (0:00-3:28) focuses on the technology that Hawking uses in his everyday life. We are going to focus on the second part of the interview.
As you watch the video try to answer these questions:
1. According to Hawking, what are the positive and negative uses of internet? (3:28)
2. According to Hawking, does artificial intelligence (AI) exist? (4:12)
His « voice » is a little strange and unfortunately there are no subtitles. If you have trouble understanding the interview, you can check out the highlights in this BBC article:
