The Singularity is the technological creation of smarter-than-human intelligence. There are several technologies that are often mentioned as heading in this direction. The most commonly mentioned is probably Artificial Intelligence, but there are others: direct brain-computer interfaces, biological augmentation of the brain, genetic engineering, ultra-high-resolution scans of the brain followed by computer emulation. Some of these technologies seem likely to arrive much earlier than the others, but there are nonetheless several independent technologies all heading in the direction of the Singularity – several different technologies which, if they reached a threshold level of sophistication, would enable the creation of smarter-than-human intelligence. the singularity institute for artificial intelligence
the nooka philosophy also posits that universal communication can only help bring the planet forward in integrating the resources and technologies necessary to reach the singularity.
we are thereby more than thrilled to announce that nooka will be one of the sponsors for the singularity summit 2010 on august 14th -15th – a gathering of thinkers to explore the rising impact of techno-progressivism. the singularity institute, founded in 2006, is an organization that exists to confront both the risks and opportunities of artificial intelligence.
