Similar to all species, contemporary humans are genetically adapted to the environment of their ancestors—that is, to the environment that their ancestors survived in and that consequently conditioned their genetic makeup (1-3).
From NATO’s vantage point, Russia poses a serious military threat to its eastern flank—and to Euro-Atlantic security more broadly—for three reasons.Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history.Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.As the reported years later, Woods attempted to escape his then-wife’s wrath by driving away in his Cadillac Escalade — but he didn’t get far.After Woods had crashed his vehicle into a tree after first hitting a fire hydrant, neighbors called police after discovering the golfer unconscious, bloody, and snoring.In particular, food staples and food-processing procedures introduced during the Neolithic and Industrial Periods have fundamentally altered 7 crucial nutritional characteristics of ancestral hominin diets: Evolution acting through natural selection represents an ongoing interaction between a species’ genome and its environment over the course of multiple generations.
Genetic traits may be positively or negatively selected relative to their concordance or discordance with environmental selective pressures (1).
Artificial-intelligence (AI) research is now progressing rapidly.
Recent landmarks such as self-driving cars, a computer winning at and the digital personal assistants Siri, Google Now and Cortana are merely symptoms of an IT arms race fuelled by unprecedented investments and building on an increasingly mature theoretical foundation.
In the near term, world militaries are considering autonomous-weapon systems that can choose and eliminate targets; the UN and Human Rights Watch have advocated a treaty banning such weapons.
In the medium term, as emphasised by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew Mc Afee in Looking further ahead, there are no fundamental limits to what can be achieved: there is no physical law precluding particles from being organised in ways that perform even more advanced computations than the arrangements of particles in human brains.
Third, the Kremlin has been conducting a far more aggressive, anti-Western foreign policy, significantly ratcheting up provocative military maneuvers near NATO members’ borders with Russia, intimating nuclear threats, and deploying nuclear-capable missiles in the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.
