Intel shows along with Stephen Hawking faster communication




Stephen Hawking has partnered with Intel presented a new computer in which the software of SwiftKey is included. This allows the cripple scientist can communicate faster.

Hawking, who is paralyzed, can the new Intel computer easier and faster texts that compose a speech synthesizer then pronounce with the distinctive robot voice by ALS muscle disease almost entirely. The new communication system is predictive software keyboard Swiftkey. Just like the virtual keyboard for mobile phones can predict the Swiftkey software words so Hawking, who controls his computer with a cheek sensor, enter fewer characters. According to Intel, the system can reduce the number of necessary “attacks” by 80 percent.

Hawking of the system consists of a Lenovo x230 tablet that runs on Windows 7. Also special software from Intel along with Swiftkey software installed on your tablet. Intel has indicated that the software will give next year free. Also wants to support the chipmaker new input methods, for example, people who can only blink their eyes. Incidentally Hawking has stated that he did not want the world famous robot voice communications are needed to get an upgrade. He considers the artificial voice now as his trademark.

Hawking also gave his views during the presentation of the potential hazards of artificial intelligence to a question from the BBC. According to the British, the current primitive forms of artificial intelligence useful applications, but Hawking said to fear the consequences of a system that can match humanity. The eminent scientist even suggested that the development of complete artificial intelligent systems can mean the end of humanity.

The warning words of Hawking about the potential dangers of AI, which he already in May pronounced , also sound to others. So let entrepreneur Elon Musk record that he sees the emergence of artificial intelligence as “probably our greatest existential threat.”
