2045 or the Exponential growth of Technology

The engineer, inventor, thinker and futurist Ray Kurzweil (Ray Kurzweil bio; Ray Kurzweil wiki ) explains the exponential growth of information technologie under the concept of singularity. (Introduced to me by @avinashkaushik & @Eliasgeha)

The trend: Change not only accelerates, but follows an exponential growth. And technology’s accelerating power transforms us. Here is an excerpt:

The engineer, inventor, thinker and futurist Ray Kurzweil (Ray Kurzweil bio; Ray Kurzweil wiki ) explains the exponential growth of information technology under the concept of singularity. (Introduced to me by @avinashkaushik & @Eliasgeha)

The way he highlights the trend is interesting: Change not only accelerates, but follows an exponential curve/growth. And technology’s accelerating power transforms us. Here is an excerpt:

The explosive nature of exponential growth means it may only take a quarter of a millennium to go from sending messages on horseback to saturating the matter and energy in our solar system with sublimely intelligent processes. The ongoing expansion of our future superintelligence will then require moving out into the rest of the universe, where we may engineer new universes.

  1. Mad science thanks for the ticker K.
    The singularity is definitely an horizon event to watch! Reality will forever change the day humans will come up with an AI capable of though, learning and conscience, how much; we can merely grasp an ounce of what the future hold for us…

    Watch out for T4, next May 21:

    A+

    1. Andres, your Terminator Salvation 4 Minute Clip video trailer is funny, so dramatic, I can’t stop laughing. I would love to see the singularity theory in video format. Would be interesting.

  2. P.S: Terminator 4 is not a comedy I repeat not a comedy! I’m waiting for the singularity video game on Nintendo DS or Wii (shameless product placement) 😉

  3. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog
    writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
