It is essentially a merging of man and
machine, the development of a ‘new species’ - a ‘borg’ of sorts. The
subject recently made headlines when a major Russian scientist
promised Singularity to the wealthy elite and ruling class by 2045
2045 program, with artificial bodies available as early
The high-powered CEO admits that not
only is the research on artificial intelligence outpacing the safety
research that is intended to keep it in check, but that Singularity
would actually make humans the ‘prey’ of sorts to the ‘super-human’
This is particularly interesting when
considering that artificial bodies and brains have been promised
first to the wealthy elite by the 2045 program creator, allowing
world rulers and the financial elite to achieve ‘immortality’ and
subsequently a never-ending rule over the humans of the world.
The concerns echo those put forth by researchers and analysts who have been following the concept of Singularity for decades.
With the ultimate goal of linking all hyper-intelligent androids into a ‘cognitive network’ of sorts and eventually even forfeiting physical bodies, it’s clear that the Singularity movement even has its top supporters openly speaking out against it in many regards.
What’s even more clear, however, is the
fact that AI Singularity has no place for humankind - not even in a
form of co-existence.
