If you’ve ever wanted to ask Stephen Hawking anything this is your chance. He’ll be taking questions next week on his first-ever Reddit AMA.
As reported by the Verge, the AMA is presented by Nokia and Wired on Reddit’s r/science. Hawking’s Reddit AMA is going to be different than most, which are usually about an hour-long direct Q&A. For the Hawking Q&A, Redditors can post their questions from Monday, July 27, to Tuesday, Aug. 4. He will then answer questions over the next few weeks.
As it was just announced that Hawking is partnering with Russian high-tech billionaire Yuri Milner to search for alien civilizations in space, there’s no time like the present to pose questions about that topic. The Verge also states that “Hawking is said to be interested in discussing his thoughts on AI,” in particular the Future of Life letter that he and others, including Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak, signed expressing their concerns about the development and use of artificial intelligence.
