During our lives we come across different life experiences. But one day each beginning has its end, and nothing unexpected is there. So Vernor Vinge’s idea about the creation of superhuman intelligence, leading to the end of the human era is quite logical. It is worth mentioning that computer scientist and science fiction author wrote such novels as A Fire Upon the Deep and Rainbows End.
According to the PRWeb, Vinge coined the meme, 'the Singularity' to describe what could happen when technological capabilities rapidly expand to reach a point beyond which we cannot even speculate about the consequences. The issue of crossover point when raw microprocessing power surpasses the capabilities of the human brain is also troublesome.
A video interview is available on IdeasProject, a new website developed by Nokia. For more on Vinge's big idea, visit http://www.ideasproject.com/idea_person.webui?id=1212
"No one can dispute technology's rapid evolution over the past 20 years," said Valerie Buckingham, director of technology marketing, Nokia. "The concepts of artificial intelligence and technological singularity inform much of Vinge's writing and speak to the broader concept of technology's growing impact on human connectivity. That's why we're thrilled and honored that Vernor is part of our growing pool of big ideas contributors to the IdeasProject and look forward to featuring more of his thoughts on technology's singularity and its impact on the future of communications."
