West Nyack, NY – In recent years, such science and technology luminaries as Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk have voiced their concern regarding the existential threat artificial intelligence poses to humans. Some studies suggest that the rise of AI could one day lead to 60 percent unemployment. Will our technological achievements be our greatest glory or have they only served to hasten our demise?

According to Dr. Dale Layman, AI and robot technology’s continued development will not only threaten our livelihoods but our very lives.

Dr. Layman is the founder of Robowatch, an international human rights advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness of the negative impact the continued advancement of robotics will have on society. The purpose of Robowatch, says Dr. Layman, is to keep a watchful eye on the fast-moving developments occurring in the fields of robotics, computing, and artificial intelligence industries.

“I’m on a mission of mercy to save all mankind,” says Dr. Layman. “There is a limit to which humanity can benefit from the rapid evolution of technology and accelerative change. I’m not anti-technology. I’m pro-human. When our technology advances at the expense of our humanity, how can we protect ourselves?”

Technological progress isn’t always positive and the rapid advancements in technology do not allow time to adequately assess the effects before the next development. To Dr. Layman, that’s far too great a risk to take.

"My heart, it is breaking!  And my soul, it is aching!  For I have foreseen the end of mankind!" cries Dr. Layman. "This may turn out to be the ancient battle between the forces of Good and Evil!"
