The Singularity Is Coming..! : The Artificial Intelligence Explosion.
Tony Thorne MBE's new 'fact against fiction' book is about THE SINGULARITY, and the resulting Artificial Intelligence Explosion. So what is a singularity? It's easiest described as a one way event, something which once it occurs cannot be reversed. So what kind of singularity phenomenon is explored in this book? Many scientists claim it poses a far greater threat to humanity than global warming, and it may be no more than ten years away..! This singularity, the creation of machines that are far cleverer than we are, and the runaway consequences that will follow, will change our way of life... completely. They will follow on from the Artificial Intelligence devices we already have today. More incredible developments will emerge after them, and then after that, and so on... until it happens.
