A FORMER Uber worker has formed an odd cult to build a “godhead” robot, “a billion times” smarter than any human.
Anthony Levandowski has created the Way of the Future, a religion based around super powered AI.
The tech boffin is looking for followers of the new religion to help him build super intelligence into a bot, which they will then worship.
When asked about how powerful his “god” would be, Levandowski was not shy in talking up its
“It’s not a god in the sense that it makes lighting or causes hurricanes.
“But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it.”
They also believe that machines, just like animals, have rights and the right to become “super intelligent”.
And in a chilling glimpse into the future, Levandowski added that computers would definitely be smarter than humans.
Mr Levandowski has not revealed if he has plans for the robot turning on humans.
The Way of the Future religion, however, believes it is important for machines to see who is friendly to their cause and who is not.
