In my latest Because Science, I’m taking a look at the different levels of artificial intelligence or A.I. and the dreaded “singularity.” Very generally, there are two types of A.I., weak or “narrow” A.I. and strong A.I..

But when strong A.I. does burst onto the scene, which many A.I. researchers think will happen in the next few decades, human life will change forever. We don’t know what will happen. Maybe we’ll get an Ultron.
