When will the Singularity happen?

Asked by steelmarket (3591 points ) April 2nd, 2008

Some futurists, led by Ray Kurzweil, say that we are approaching a time when the rate of technological change will exceed our ability to predict (or perhaps even imagine). This is called the Singularity.

not soon enough. Ray isn’t all that worried about certain senarios slowing tech advancement, but there is nothing like an administration that cares little for science that can really slow down progress.
