Technological Singularity

The Technological Singularity is a hypothetical future time when technological change becomes so rapid that humans, as we now are, will no longer have any practical capacity for prediction or control. This may occur as a result of the development of general artificial intelligence, capable of recursive self-improvement. It would be a momentous milestone in human evolution, presenting unprecedented risks and opportunities, likely leading either to our extinction or to our transformation into superhumanity. The idea was popularized by Ray Kurzweil in his book, The Singularity Is Near.
