What Will the Singularity Feel Like?

If we live long enough, we may not need to worry about what the future holds for us. A new theory suggests that a technologically advanced society will be able to extend the human life span without needing artificial intelligence. But what will it feel like when we achieve this ultimate goal? The Singularity concept was first introduced by Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel. It posits that the pace of technological development will eventually reach an exponential level, which will lead to an unsustainable lifestyle.

What will the Singularity Feel Like

In the year 2000, Vernor Vinge, a computer scientist and science fiction writer, wrote an article describing how accelerating technology would enable machines to achieve superhuman intelligence. He estimated that the world’s technological development would reach this point sometime between 2005 and 2030. This article reflects his predictions. In recent years, several well-known technologists, including Elon Musk and Bill Gates, have warned against the dangers of such runaway progress.

The Singularity will be the end of the human race as we know it today. According to Kurzweil, this future society will be characterized by exponential technology and low birth rates. The result will be a population imbalance. Some groups will have fewer babies while others will have more. Those who don’t have children will likely be pushed out of the society. People who don’t want a child may turn to religion, where a single person will be able to carry out their religious beliefs.
