Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The “Singularity”

As quoted by Ray Kurzweil, noted futurist and Googles Directory of Engineering, during an interview with Futurism: “2029 is the consistent date I have predicted for when an AI will pass a valid Turing test and therefore achieve human levels of intelligence. I have set the date 2045 for the ‘Singularity’ which is when we will multiply our effective intelligence a billion fold by merging with the intelligence we have created.” In other words, this is when AI will eclipse human intelligence. 1
