It is well established a technological singularity will occur at some point
>Four polls, conducted in 2012 and 2013, suggested that the median estimate was a 50% chance that artificial general intelligence (AGI) would be developed by 2040–2050.
>The first use of the concept of a "singularity" in the technological context was John von Neumann.[4] Stanislaw Ulam reports a discussion with von Neumann "centered on the accelerating progress of technology and changes in the mode of human life, which gives the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue

>Source: Wikipedia: technological singularity

How do we prevent it from occurring? Obviously we want to get technology right up to the edge of a singularity to get max efficiency for human gains, but not go so far as to trigger a real singularity which would signal the EXTINCTION of Homo Sapien

Is a Nanny AI the only option? (A friendly AI who monitors everyone on the planet to ensure nobody, not lone hacker nor government, triggers a singularity - notifies the authorities well before hand)

You can't, I'm gonna start it just to fuck with people.
If that doesn't work I'm just gonna buy all the coal on the planet and see if this global warming thing works out.

Its inevitable
Just gotta hope for the best

Trying to prevent it is evil and stupid.

Literally impossible to prevent without making the human genome never mutate ever again. We’ll just turn into a bunch of robots. You’re a moron.

What if I told you we're already there? In due time the world will wake up and and figure it out.
