Fake. There's no way in the world that he could twitch a single muscle in his cheek fast enough to transfer that much data so quickly. He's just wired for sound and somebody elsewhere types out the answers in real time back to the voice generator.
3:35 most important question to Stephen :"who is talking to me right now, is it You or is it sentient computer pretending to talk on your behalf?
Answer: "its me"
-yes, but how do i know that professor because if computers had become sentient what better way to convince people that they hadn't then by co opting the voice of the most inteligent man on planet"
-" your'e an idiot".
So, we assumed that Hawking is most inteligent man on earth, and hi said only u are idiot, on question, is it really you who thinks all those ideas, or is it a machine?
This is the single most cringy thing I have ever seen. Poor man, having to sit through this idiot’s barrage of retarded questions and half-assed jokes. I rarely comment on YT videos, but this just made me want to kill myself.
Academics must be careful with this class of scientists, type, hawking, other pseudosciences such as astrology, alchemy, parapsychology, cryptozoology, etc. They were very popular at another time and were diluted by their lack of consistency, the nobels They were already chastened when the Nobel Laureate was given to Egas Moniz in 1949 for his practice of cerebral lobotomy, the atrocious surgery was later banned by the authorities.
It has already begun the competition to see who is the most hawking Mr. ball, a televised charlatan that never won the Nobel because he never showed anything, and that can only qualify as a science fiction writer.
(Metro)One BBC staffer reports that on Newsnight, a producer pulled out a cable – and Hawking slumped forwards as if he had been ‘disconnected’. https://twitter.com/jim_reed/status/973850555901767681
He also famously said in an interview, ‘The downside of my celebrity is that I cannot go anywhere in the world without being recognised.
‘It is not enough for me to wear dark sunglasses and a wig. The wheelchair gives me away.’
In a 2012 biography, ‘Stephen Hawking: An Unfettered Mind’ Kitty Ferguson claimed that the physicist would deliberately run over people’s toes in his wheelchair if they annoyed him. Ferguson wrote, ‘The prince was intrigued by Hawking’s wheelchair, and Hawking, twirling it around to demonstrate its capabilities, carelessly ran over Prince Charles’s toes.
‘People who annoyed him, it was said, found themselves a target.’
I'm late, but I really hope he rests well and in peace. He left a great mark on the world and rests in the hearts of all of us even now. At least now he isn't in any pain anymore, and he doesn't need to worry about anything.
