This piece really made me think: the end of humanity as we know it’s ‘coming in 2045’ (and Google is preparing for it)

 

“What is the singularity?

In maths/physics, the singularity is the point at which a function takes an infinite value because it’s incomprehensibly large.
The technological singularity, as it called, is the moment when artificial intelligence takes off into ‘artificial superintelligence’ and becomes exponentially more intelligent more quickly.

As self-improvement becomes more efficient, it would get quicker and quicker at improvement until the machine became infinitely more intelligent infinitely quickly.”
