“Think what were gonna do in this century, which is invent thinking machines.” “The aliens have probably already done that, so the real aliens probably look like machines,” said Seth Shostak from the SETI Institute.
Speaking to Neil deGrasse Tyson for a National Geographic Star Talk entitled, “The Science of Alien Sightings,” Senior SETI astronomer Shostak talked about common misconceptions about how aliens are portrayed in today’s society. Shostak pointed out that a third of the public believes in the “UFO phenomena.”
However as reported by Inverse, even though there is a freakishly large number of people who claim to have witnessed UFO sightings and even abductions, the description of their appearance falls along familiar lines.
Last year, at a presentation at the Dent: Space conference in San Francisco, Mr. Shostak said that transforming into AI is the natural evolution of any intelligent civilization.
