Hawking is warning the scientific community to avoid contacting alien civilization as aliens can destroy us easily when they notice us. He is not warning that we have wrong strategy to seek aliens instead of advancing our civilization by intelligent internet. This wrong strategy is vaisting vast . volunteer computing capacity of our world by seeking an alien life form. It is grave mistake. We should put this vast volunteer computing power into creating intelligent internet. We should get newly unveiled IBM cognitive chip and put it for the service all the internet users so that this stupid internet becomes an intelligent internet. It is not only IBM but also other greedy corporations like Google are also responsible for any failure. This is an early warning to save our civilization from a human or alien accident or attack. It is exteremely urgent to transform our stupid internet into an intelligent internet.
Stephen William Hawking, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA (born 8 January 1942) is an English theoretical physicist and cosmologist, whose scientific books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and in 2009 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest
Existence and nature of extraterrestrial life
Hawking has indicated that he is almost certain that alien life exists in other parts of the universe and uses a mathematical basis for his assumptions. “To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational. The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like.” He believes alien life not only certainly exists on planets but perhaps even in other places, like within stars or even floating in outer space. He also warns that a few of these species might be intelligent and threaten Earth. Contact with such species might be devastating for humanity. “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” he said. He advocated that, rather than try to establish contact, humans should try to avoid contact with alien life forms.
SETI@home SETI@home (“SETI at home“) is an Internet-based public volunteer computing project employing the BOINC software platform, hosted by the Space Sciences Laboratory, at the University of California, Berkeley, in the United States. SETI is an acronym for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. Its purpose is to analyze radio signals, searching for signs of extra terrestrial intelligence, and is one of many activities undertaken as part of SETI.
SETI@home was released to the public on May 17, 1999, making it the second large-scale use of distributed computing over the Internet for research purposes, as Distributed.net was launched in 1997. Along with MilkyWay@home and Einstein@home, it is the third major computing project of this type that has the investigation of phenomena in interstellar space as its primary purpose.
