A man dependent on technology
to communicate his brilliance of mind
has nonetheless warned that biology
cannot keep pace and may get left behind.
As intelligence turns artificial,
warns Hawking, it’s an existential threat.
Benign for now and quite beneficial,
future advances are yet to be met.
As computational skill amasses,
and A.I. self-designs,
we’re not needed,
and once it matches us, it will pass us.
We’ll find that we have been superseded.
Irrelevant, we’ll be left unemployed,
or possibly destroyed.
