  Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year might be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or ten thousand years.” By that time, we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race.” However, we will not establish self-sustaining colonies in space for at least the next hundred years, so we have to be very careful in this period. Hawking also signed an open letter about the weaponization of robots and the ongoing military artificial intelligence arms race among the world™s military powers. Concern over the automation of the world™s workforce coupled with capitalist greed also earned the scientist™s stern alarm.
