What Will the Singularity Feel Like?

In the discourse about the Singularity, men and women of color are typically absent from the discussion. Traditionally, this group has included only white men, though it could include people of color. For example, on Charlie Rose’s “Singularity” series, he welcomed three guests to a round table. The third guest was a robotic replica of Philip K. Dick, who mimicked the host’s facial expressions with a virtual penis. It was difficult to believe that he was brought back from the dead!

Vernor Vinge, a computer scientist and science fiction writer, has predicted that our technology will reach superhuman intelligence in about a generation. In the book, he predicts that machines will reach superintelligence in around 2030. Since then, several well-known technologists and scientists have warned of the dangers of this runaway technological progress. Among them are Bill Gates and Elon Musk.

The Singularity will not only affect humanity. It will transform human life. But it will also bring about change that can’t be predicted. As human beings continue to evolve and create machines, they will have to evolve to keep up. Eventually, humans will be replaced by artificially intelligent robots. Some scientists are skeptical of this concept, and believe that humans should be included in the discourse about the impending Singularity.
