Abstract

Since the first humanoid species walked the earth, mankind has influenced plenty of changes that have sped up the process of societal evolution. Humans have a far more superior brain than other creatures, granting us better cognitive ability, improved communication and social organization. Mankind is, therefore, able to think abstractly, work collectively and gather information used throughout the ages. These traits have enabled humans to modify the environment to suit daily living. Information technology is one discipline that has evolved greatly along with civilizations since the 20th century. Advances in information technology include: the proliferation of the internet, reduction in size of computing devices, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence among others. This research focuses on the consideration of one controversial aspect in Artificial Intelligence – The Singularity.

Summary of research results to be presented

Achieving a successful singularity is favorable and crucial to societal evolution. Judging by the evolution of economies, societies and technologies, the singularity is close. This implies a period of unprecedented economic and social growth which is demonstrated. Improvements in the three technologies: genetics, nanotechnology and robotics, could further propel us toward a period free of disease, hunger, aging and even death. Thus, we should brace ourselves for technological singularity.
