Roman Yampolskiy is Assistant Professor and Head of Cyber Security Lab at University of Louisville. In an article posted at Innovation News Daily, "Humanity Must 'Jail' Dangerous AI to Avoid Doom, Expert Says", Dr. Yampolskiy was quoted as warning: "..."If such software manages to self-improve to levels significantly beyond human-level intelligence, the type of damage it can do is truly beyond our ability to predict or fully comprehend,"
