The Singularity is Ever Nearer

SingularityPhil and Stephen consider whether humanity is about to enter a new historical epoch.

Quick recap, singularity defined:

The Singularity is an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly nonbiological and trillions of times more powerful than it is today—the dawning of a new civilization that will enable us to transcend our biological limitations and amplify our creativity.

 

Is the world fundamentally changing along these or other lines? Developments to consider:
