What Will the Singularity Feel Like?
What will the Singularity Feel like? This is one question I have been asking myself since I first came to the realization that computers could do so much. It made so much sense, and yet, at the time, it still did not make sense. What will the Singularity Feel like?
For starters, if you think about what will the Singularity Feel like, the term ‘organic intelligence’ is a good way to start. That being said, I also think that the term should be used in conjunction with ‘artificial intelligence’, which I believe to be more important, because when you get down to it, all of our technological endeavors will ultimately be directed by artificial intelligence. Thus, I would argue that what will the Singularity feel like is the integration of the AI and super computer technologies. We are already seeing this with things like Google, Amazon and others, who are attempting to gather, organize, consolidate and catalog everything on the Internet, as well as other platforms such as social media.
When you get right down to it, we are very far from having anything approaching human-level intelligence. But what we are today, is progress in the next level of AI research, which will hopefully arrive in the next few decades. When we reach that point, I believe we will have something that is faster than humans can think. That will be fun to say, won’t it? Indeed, hope you enjoyed the article.
