[News Archive] November 2006

November 2006: Excuse me for slipping into blog mode temporarily, but are superhuman AI and the technological singularity really coming in the near future (i.e. the next 20–30 years)? As I see the incredible recent progress in computer processing power, computer vision algorithms, search engines, miniaturisation, nanotechnology and so on it seems more and more feasible to me that they might be. It is hard to even start thinking about all of the implications of this, positive and negative, but I recommend Kurzweil’s book and I think this is something that serious scientists and the general public should all be talking about.
