The Singularity and Our Collision Path with the Future

Artificial intelligence and singularity are close, but that is not all: the work appears in an essay and treatise that examines the impact of artificial intelligence on the future of human life and society. It is entitled "When humans transcend biology, singularity is: Artificial Intelligence, the Future of Human Life and Human Society, "and it is the first of a series of essays on the subject, with particular emphasis on artificial intelligence, singularities and their impact on human existence. 

Singularity is closer, "with a publication in 2021, and it will be interesting to see how it feeds into recent observations on the progress of singularity. If we achieve this singularity, we will dominate many emerging and converging sciences, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, artificial neural networks, and quantum computing technology. Most importantly, it would include computer programs that become artificial intelligence that exceeds human intelligence by potentially erasing the boundaries between humans and computers. The AI described by Vinge to develop the next generation of AI would create a superintelligence that would fit the definition of "singularity" at a pace of change approaching an infinite understanding of mere human intelligence. 

Meanwhile, futurist and singularity enthusiast Ray Kurzweil has cited 2029 as the date when A.I. will pass a valid Turing test and reach human intelligence. Leading artificial intelligence researcher and Google co-founder Sergey Brin has predicted that AI will pass the Turing test by 2029 and reach a 'singularity level' by 2045.

Singularity comes at a time when technological creations are surpassing the computing power of the human brain. Kurzweil has predicted that the time for "singularity" in the next decade has come, owing to his research on artificial intelligence. 

Kurzweil defines "singularity" as the point at which the pace of technological change will be so rapid and human life will be irreversibly changed. Singularity is at hand, and he predicts that it will coincide with the end of human civilization and the beginning of a new age of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is being created at such a rapid pace that he has predicted that we will have turned the brain around. According to Kurz, singularity will not only change human life, but will also enable humans to overcome the limits of the biological body and brain. 

Based on mathematical calculations and exponential technological development, Kurzweil predicts that singularity will occur in 2045. The exponential growth of machine intelligence will continue until the computing power of rapidly evolving computers exceeds that of the evolving human brain. Once this singularity is achieved, he says, the intelligence of machines will be greater than that of all humans combined. Futurist Ray Kurzweils predicts that machines will reach human intelligence by 2030, and that computing power will only increase until it surpasses the powers of all human minds by 2060.

So in my book, singularity is near In my book "The Future of Humanity," I present the possibility of a technological singularity in the middle of this century.

The idea is that technology will advance so fast that we will be heading for a moment when almost anything will be possible technologically, even if it is impossible to see it until the moment of singularity, because it will be a future unparalleled in the synthesis of man-machine. If we accept this date in the not-too-distant future, if machine intelligence surpasses our own and improves exponentially, then we will not be able to fight what we are talking about. As machines conquer the world, Kurzweil thinks we will fight until we accept that. 

However, this could create a problem for human intelligence that is connected with the arrival of singularity and gets out of control. Before considering the plausibility of this "singularity hypothesis," we are looking at a literal singularity at which the speed of machine intelligence improvement will become literally infinite at some point in the future. Ray Kurzweil, perhaps the best known forecaster of singularities, has said that computers will keep pace with human intelligence by 2029, with singularity expected in 2045. He admits that the exponential trend of increasing computing power will eventually reach a limit, but he calculates that this limit will be a trillion times higher than is necessary for clarity. 

He postulates that future technology will advance to the point where collective human biology and artificial intelligence will merge into a super-intelligent reality called singularity, which we will soon achieve. The "singularity," that is, the fusion of humanity with technology, will penetrate the universe at the speed of light and transform its own intelligence into pure energy. 

The essential arguments that are connected with singularity are based on an overwhelming logic: singularity assumes that, once it has reached a certain point, artificial intelligence improves its capacity for self-improvement and moves away from intelligence at the human level at an increasing rate. This point will come as we develop algorithms capable of self-improvement, and as artificial intelligence becomes increasingly powerful and autonomous.
