Declaration of Singularity 2014

 

What’s the difference between the original Delcaration of Independence and the Speculist’s Declaration of Singularity?

Obviously one has already happened, and one has yet to happen. But what else? A few minor word changes aside, the big difference has to do with when things happen versus when they are declared to have happened.

What can we make of recent headlines concerning the Turing Test, self-Driving cars, and other developments?  Do they change the Declaration at all?

Or maybe is it time for a new declaration altogther?

Tune in and explore!
