The world-renown astrophysicist who warned the world of the impending threat that AI poses has passed away at 76. Hawking also warned of the dangers of sending radio signals out into space since he theorized it may draw the attention of hostile entities.

Hawking was also an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, and Director of Research at the Center for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge.

In a statement released by Hawking's family, they said: "Professor Hawking died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of this (Wednesday) morning."

Among his achievements was being an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest award a civilian can receive in the U.S.

Hawking suffered from a rare early-onset and slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The disease gradually paralyzed him over a period of several decades.

Despite being mostly paralyzed, Hawking was still able to communicate using a single cheek muscle attached to a speech-generating device literally allowing him to speak through a computer.

Hawking died on March 14, 2018. He was 76-years-old.

Only good? Didn't he have the position held in the past by Sir Isaac Newton? Certainly Hawking and hawking radiation will be remembered for generations.

Way after they have forgotten he was a cripple with a bad attitude.
