Video Friday — Technological Singularities: An Overview
H+ readers will enjoy this video from Gennady Stolyarov.
Gennady discusses three technological singularities that have already happened and discusses their effects and impacts on human existence. Mr. Stolyarov starts by explaining the concept of a technological Singularity and his understanding that humankind has already experienced three such Singularities in the form of the Agricultural, Industrial, and Information Revolutions. The next Singularity will come about due to a convergence of technologies such as artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and biotechnology (including indefinite life extension).
