On the opening day of the YES forum in Kiev, the participants were addressed by a hologram of the scientist Stephen Hawking.
The presentation from Cambridge came his daughter, Lucy Hawking. She spoke about her father.
Stephen Hawking appealed to the Ukrainians and said that he sees no difference between what can reach the biological brain and the computer. He believes that artificial intelligence could surpass humans.
The scientist reminded about the role of Ukrainians in science and noted Ukrainian scientist Vladimir Vernadsky.
Hawking wished Ukrainians more freedom and encouraged to look at the stars, not feet.
