The Technological Singularity

The technological singularity or simply The Singularity is the belief that the invention of artificial superintelligence (ASI) in combination with Neurochips will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization and humans themselves. Many refer to the human change as becoming Cyborgs (Half-Machine and Half-Human). John von Neumann, Vernor Vinge and Ray Kurzweil define the concept in terms of the technological creation of super intelligence. They argue that it is difficult or impossible for present-day humans to predict what human beings’ lives would be like in a post-singularity world. Some such as myself, believe that the combination of such technologies as Molecular NanoTechnology, Neurochips (Computer Interface with Human Brains), and Artificial Intelligence may all combine to radically change the entire World and Human Society. Some even speculate that AI might bring about the end of Mankind. The Singularity may happen within the next 20 or 30 years if not sooner. A neurochip is a chip (integrated circuit/microprocessor) that is designed for the interaction with neuronal cells. In Science-Fiction there have been many stories of Cyborgs who have many mechanical or Machine based parts. However, I believe we are coming to a period where we may be able to use organic systems that may be far more compatible. We are even seeing the dawn of being able to create human organs or parts for replacement of failed organs. “Neuromorphic computing—the next big thing in artificial intelligence—is on fire.” This is a quote from an article from February 2018 by Shelley Fan ! Cybernetics is considered to be the Science of integration of Computers with people (inside of them). We may be in for some very interesting but also dangerous times ahead !
