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.     

Stephen Hawking

AI will probably most likely lead to the end of the world, but in the meantime, there'll be great companies.     

Sam Altman

AI is everywhere. It's not that big, scary thing in the future. AI is here with us.

Making AI more sensitive to the full scope of human thought is no simple task. The solutions are likely to require insights derived from fields beyond computer science, which means programmers will have to learn to collaborate more often with experts in other domains.     

Fei-Fei Li

AI might be a powerful technology, but things won't get better simply by adding AI.     

Vivienne Ming

Artificial Intelligence leaves no doubt that it wants its audiences to enter a realm of pure fantasy when it identifies one of the last remaining islands of civilization as New Jersey.     

Godfried Danneels

We are going in the direction of artificial intelligence or hybrid intelligence where a part of our brain will get information from the cloud and the other half is from you, so all this stuff will happen in the future.     

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Donald Knuth

AI's ability to recognize visual categories and images is now pretty close to what human beings can manage, and probably better than a lot of people's, actually. AI can have more knowledge of detailed categories, like animals and so on.     

Stuart J. Russell

Artificial Intelligence is whatever hasn't been done yet.     

Larry Tesler

The key to artificial intelligence has always been the representation.     

Jeff Hawkins

A lot of movies about artificial intelligence envision that AIs will be very intelligent but missing some key emotional qualities of humans and therefore turn out to be very dangerous.     

Ray Kurzweil

As we consider the implications of AI, there is a bright future ahead for countries that invest and participate.
