Topic: The technological singularity movement: will the singularity occur around 2045?
Abstract: A technological singularity is a dramatic change in technology and application of artificial intelligence; it will come to a point where the state of the change becomes completely unpredictable and uncontrollable. Ray Kurzweil, the guru of Singularity Movement (SM) believes that the singularity will occur before the end of the 21st century, predicting the date as year 2045. He predicts a great change in human civilization; human beings will become human/machine cyborgs – godlike hybrids capable of nearly infinite intelligence and immortal existence. The two main goals of the SM are true artificial intelligence and immortality. The SM advocates predict that the advances in computational power, genomics, and medicine will allow human to live forever in a techno-utopia. One of the basic claims of the SM advocates is that computing technology and medical knowhow are expected to grow exponentially as suggested in Moores Law and other generalizations of Moores Law. Kurzweil writes that, due to paradigm shifts, a trend of exponential growth will continue and that in a relatively near future, the computing power of all computers will exceed that of human brains, with superhuman artificial intelligence appearing in all domains of human life. This talk will introduce the technological singularity movement and investigates from different perspectives the claim of the SM advocates.
