Stephen Hawking will come to Reddit's r/science next week for his first ever AMA and he has a specific topic in mind.

It may not be entirely an 'Ask Me Anything' as Prof. Hawking wants to field questions dealing with artificial intelligence and the hurdles that we face as a species as technology moves forward in the field.

According to CNET:

Typically, a Reddit AMA is live as people throw questions at the subject, and the person tries to keep up with the barrage by responding as best as possible. But for Hawking's AMA, you'll present the questions ahead of time, and he'll answer them over the following weeks.

Specifically, you can submit your questions starting Monday July 27 at 8am ET through Tuesday, August 4, at reddit.com/r/science, and Hawking will respond over the next few weeks. Hawking, who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, uses a computer to communicate. So the delayed format will allow him the time necessary to answer questions."



Hawking joined Elon Musk and other notable industry figures earlier this year in an open letter to promote studying the possible dangers of AI research and how to avoid them.

In his first AMA, Hawking surely wants to continue that conversation.

But of course, someone will ask him about his favorite sandwich.

In his April 24 Reddit AMA Chris Pratt was asked whether he liked Game of Thrones. Pratt did one better and gave his favorite character.

One a week the sketchyCrab will pick a submission from his website and draw the winner as a "hideous freak". Each lucky winner receives an email with a high resolution version to do whatever they want with (new LinkedIn photo perhaps).

Why you ask??? Because "people apparently hate feeling good about themselves".
