The creator of the first ­robot artist is warning that the rise of artificial intelligence is “apocalyptic” – and we are “hurtling” towards AI taking over from humans.

Aidan Meller, who is behind the ultra-realistic Ai-Da robot, reckons within three years we will face unimaginable changes as man merges with machine.

Aidan says: “I agree with Elon Musk that AI is a bigger threat than nuclear war – but it could also be remarkable too.

“There is every right to feel nervous about the rise of AI.

“We are hurtling towards them taking over humans so we need to have a heart of ethics.

“We are merging with ­machines – be warned, this is a changing world.”
