What Will the Singularity Feel Like?
There is much debate about the coming singularity and what it will mean for society. The Singularity will be marked by exponential growth in information technology. The amount of data created each day is vastly increasing. As more people become computerized, the number of people with internet access also increases exponentially. If the Singularity occurs soon, what will it feel like? And what will the future look like?
Singularity refers to the time when new technologies will transform our lives forever. The technological advances that come afterward may not even be understood by the people who came before. This dramatic change in thinking is called the Singularity. The term is derived from mathematics, and describes the point at which equations no longer make sense. As the technological advancement increases, people will be forced to change the way they think.
In the Singularity, superintelligence will outperform humans. Humans will be rendered useless by superintelligent machines. During the Singularity, artificial intelligence will surpass human capabilities and take over human civilization. During the first half of the 21st century, significant advancements in genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics will lay the foundation for the Singularity.
