Science legend, Stephen Hawking, has rattled historians and engineers when he delivered a speech on human being behavior, suggesting that the human race could have been stupid all the while it existed.

The 74-year-old was speaking at the opening of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI) at Cambridge University on Thursday.

His words:
"We spend a great deal of time studying history, which, let’s face it, is mostly the history of stupidity. So it’s a welcome change that people are studying instead the future of intelligence.

"The potential benefits of creating intelligence are huge. We cannot predict what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by AI. Perhaps with the tools of this new technological revolution, we will be able to undo some of the damage done to the natural world by the last one – industrialisation. And surely we will aim to finally eradicate disease and poverty.

"Every aspect of our lives will be transformed. In short, success in creating AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilisation.

"Perhaps with the tools of this new technological revolution, we will be able to undo some of the damage done to the natural world by the last one -- industrialization.

"And surely we will aim to finally eradicate disease and poverty."
