Artificial intelligence can now cook you a meal, chat to you on your phone, and beat you in a game of rock, paper, scissors.
But Andy Rubin, who co-founded Android, believes that AI in the future will go one step further – being so powerful that it underpins every connected device.
Mr Rubin said a combination of quantum computing and AI advancements could yield a conscious intelligence that would control every internet-enabled gadget.
Speaking at Bloomberg’s Tech Conference in San Francisco, Mr Rubin said: ‘If you have computing that is as powerful as this could be, you might only need one.
‘It might not be something you carry around; it just has to be conscious.’
While Mr Rubin’s claims are currently theoretical, his investment fund, Playground Global, is investing $300 million in companies trying to make this future of AI a reality.
