Singularity : Golden Panacea or Doomsday

I was reading an article about Ray Kurzweil [inventor, entrepreneur, author, futurist] and became interested in the concept of “The Singularity“, an event horizon when we realise a human level of intelligence within a machine.

There are many articles and films focusing on whether the coming Singularity will be a golden panacea or doomsday for mankind but as an engineer, what is more interesting, is the development of AI, how to actually teach a machine to learn, to possess intelligence, to reason, to plan and so forth which he briefly touches upon in some of these talks.

I particularly enjoyed reading his predictions for the future. Ray Kurzweil “How to Create a Mind”
