Surprising Science

Singularity Summit 2010

“Either you and everyone you love are going to be killed by robots; or you are going to live forever.” A.I. guru Michael Vassar on what future technology has in store for humans.

“As night thickens around Marina Boulevard on a murky San Francisco evening, one thing is crystal-clear: the future is not what it used to be. The wildest, most mind-frazzling visions of the years ahead are no longer the sole preserve of science fiction. At least, it seems that way at a reception to mark the start of the 2010 Singularity Summit, the world’s leading forum for serious discussion of incredible things to come. … The singularity is a metaphorical term used to express the transformative moment when technology has moved so rapidly that the human race can never be the same again.”
