Conversation in the car with the kids last night:
Kieran: Daddy? Do you know that man? Stephen Hawking. He’s half-man, half-robot!
Me: No Kie, he’s a genius with an illness which means he needs help moving and speaking.
Kieran: Genius. Like a scientist? Did he do that theory?
Mr Williams: Theory of Everything? A Brief History of Time?
Kieran: How to cook a chicken using only the power of the sun.
Me: No, that wasn’t him.
Kieran: Can’t be that clever then.
Especially after Stephen Hawking’s comments on the impact of AI on the human race towards the end of last year, the irony wasn’t lost on me..
