Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak previously said the "future is scary" and could be "very bad" for humans, as mankind have made machines and artificial intelligence "too important."




Speaking during the World Business Forum, Wozniak expressed concern about AI becoming a major threat to our survival:


"The most important thing for the future, which all of the leaders of our time with brains like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk and Bill Gates are talking about as the biggest threat to humanity, is that once machines have intelligence and can think themselves, that's a turning point," Wozniak said.


In addition, humans could face problems when AI is able to self-program at a faster rate than engineers and programmers can control them.


"I'm hoping they only ever reach our level, because otherwise the outcome of that is like the movies show, like it's pretty negative."
