    Coming Of Singularity
    Date: September 12, 2011
    The Coming of Singularity. Davinci insitute. "Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended." So begins Vernor Vinge's groundbreaking 1993 essay "The Coming Technological Singularity." This talk will introduce and review the concepts of the Singularity, discuss some examples of recent progress, and explore some scenarios as to how the Singularity might or might not play out. Typical predictions have the Singularity occurring in the mid-21st century, which would therefore supersede most other efforts at futurism.
