Within the coming decades we will be able to create computers with greater-than-human intelligence, bio-engineer our species, and redesign matter through nanotechnology. How will these technologies change what it means to be human?
Humanity is approaching an inevitable moment in our history when we will be able to create computer systems with greater-than-human intelligence, bio-engineer our species, and re-design matter through nanotechnology. These future technologies will transform the course of civilization. The Singularity sidesteps the sci-fi cliches about robots versus humans, presenting an intellectually thrilling debate that begins with a basic question: What kind of humans do we want to become?
