Vernor Vinge, “What If the Singularity Does NOT Happen?”, Long Now Foundation, 2007/02/15

Stewart Brand wrote:

Vinge began by declaring that he still believes that a Singularity event in the next few decades is the most likely outcome— meaning that self-accelerating technologies will speed up to the point of so profound a transformation that the other side of it is unknowable. And this transformation will be driven by Artifical Intelligences (AIs) that, once they become self-educating and self-empowering, soar beyond human capacity with shocking suddeness.
