A £10 million centre dedicated to researching Artificial Intelligence will be launched by Stephen Hawking at Cambridge University today.
The official opening of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence will take place this evening.
It's a collaboration between the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College London and Berkeley. Together they will investigate the impact of the development of artificial intelligence, to ensure that 'AI' benefits all mankind.
"The rise of powerful AI will be either the best or the worst thing ever to happen to humanity. We do not yet know which. The research done by this centre will be crucial to the future of civilisation and of our species."

A new academy has opened in Cambridgeshire to train staff to work on the £1.5 billion upgrade of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon.
The Highways Academy allows students to learn in conditions very similar to those they'll encounter on the job.
The long anticipated A14 improvement scheme will upgrade 21 miles of the notoriously busy trunk road, which links the Midlands to ports in the Anglia region.
It will involve a new bypass round Huntingdon, widening the existing road and improving junctions along the whole length.
It aims to help unlock growth in the region and cut journey times by around 20 minutes.
A consultation on new dog control measures in Cambridge has been approved.
The new proposals could see dogs banned from certain parts of the city, as well as fines imposed for owners with their dogs off leads.
"We are taking the opportunity for an early consultation with residents including dog owners, and a wide range of interested groups and dog welfare organisations, on which playgrounds, paddling pools, tennis courts and bowling greens should have dogs excluded altogether and on several extra specific sites where dogs will restricted to leads. We will be publishing full details of the sites and the timetable on the City Council website and welcome all feedback on the PSPO and the sites suggested so that we can get this right both for those who own dogs and those who don't."

A police watchdog has found delays by the child protection agency CEOP meant that known paedophiles were able to carry on abusing children.
Amongst them were Cambridge paedophile doctor Myles Bradbury and Essex deputy headteacher Martin Goldberg.
Their names were both on a list provided to CEOP by Canadian police after they attempted to buy child pornography.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said the information provided to CEOP was 'poorly handled' and the delay into passing it onto local police forces led to more children being abused.
Bradbury, a paediatric consultant at Addenbrooke's hospital was jailed for 22 years in December 2014 for the abuse of 18 vulnerable patients in his care.
Goldberg, who worked at Thorpe Hall School in Southend, had used a hidden camera to take hundreds of images of children as young as nine.
