No it isn't. I don't mean to be a pessimist but I don't think it's going to happen. We haven't even been able to practice eugenics successfully yet.

The ideas behind a singularity are in direct opposition of eugenics. Eugenics is also horrible, I used to think it was a good idea but in actuality it would take us down the fastest path to extinction. Diversity maximizes survival no matter how you look at it.

>> No.3592406

Just watched the documentary he made. I agree that this is something that will happen, however, the timescale seems much too fast. Even if the technology did develope by 2040, it takes time for humans to become comfortable with, or for the technology to become cheap enough that many people integrate it into their lives.

I'd say they're in parallel opposition, which also includes Jesus' second coming, so it's not exactly opposition, more of a competition between equally useless visions of the future.

IBM just created the first synaptic processor

We're about 25 years off from the singularity

There are plans to create and operate an exaflop supercomputer (same order of magnitude of computing power as the human brain) by 2015.

neuromorphic computing is old as shit.

>> No.3592537

I wish...
But everyday, it seems like we are further and further away from any kind of progress.
2011 is already half over and some predicted that this would be the year of robots.
