When Will The Singularity Happen?

When will The Singularity happen? Ai milestones IBM computer Deep Blue beats the world champion Gary Kasparov at chess. 1997 IBM computer Watson wins the TV game 2011 Jeopardy against human competition. Watson wins! What is The Singularity? "the ever accelerating progress of technology... .of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue." * - John von Neumann * E.g The Terminator 'Skynet' scenario. how embarrassing.. Artificial intelligence is already being used in many things that power the world, from face recognition software, to DNA sequencing to stock market trading. 2015 1000 0101 1101 0101 1011 1 million robots to replace humans by In 2012 Chinese electronics manufacturer Foxconn vowed 2017 to replace its staff with 1 million robots within 5 years. Google's driverless cars Uber's driverless taxis Driverless cars will start replacing thousands of drivers 2025 and taxi drivers in much of the developed world. 1000 x Cognitive computing "as cheap as chips" $1000 of computation will be 1000x more powerful than the human brain 2030 exponential growth in processing power Moore's Law The number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits has roughly doubled every year since the integrated circuit was invented. Observed by Gordon E. Moore (Intel founder) 1971 2011 How will it happen? • integration of technology into our environment, bodies and brains What will A.I be capable of? O Computers will learn human skills O They will access their design and rebuild themselves O They will share knowledge at electronic speeds The Singularity “Machine intelligence will be infinitely more powerful than all human intelligence combined, and technological development will be taken over by the machines." 2045 99 -Ray Kurzweil 2 year's later... Computers will be twice as clever as us, and if we're not careful we may be working for them. If we're lucky, A.I will just make pets of us. Icons by various designers. See website for credits.
