We are only just starting to discover what our upcoming technologies will be capable of, and already, through fear of possible future threats, bombs are being sent to physicists. Emerging technologies are set to revolutionise our world during the next few decades; could this lead to the rise of anti-technology terrorism becoming even more of a threat than radical Islam?
What is the singularity? And what is so special about its promoter Ray Kurzweil? The Director of Engineering at Google, is an expert futurist who has correctly predicted the majority of our technological advances. But what brought him to fame was his promoting of the upcoming Technological Singularity.
As ‘far out futurist predictions’ go, this one is as far out there as Krypton. Compiling predictions of how this century will pan out, the conclusion could be came to that many of us could be donning the red cape, and saving lives with our very own Man of Steel superpowers.
Google has hired Ray Kurzweil as Director of Engineering. Ray Kurzweil is most well known for his books, ‘How to Create a Mind’, and ‘The Singularity is Near’. It is clear that Google is preparing itself for epic technological achievements.
