“We will soon create intelligences greater than our own… When this happens, human history will have reached a kind of singularity… and the world will pass far beyond our understanding. – Vernor Vinge

Singularity describes the theoretical moment when the world as we know it, changes so much that scientific development, the scope of technologies created, and the way we lead our daily lives, would be incomprehensible to previous generations.

While some may have qualms about the acceleration rate and rise of technology, philosopher and filmmaker, Jason Silva, has a different take.
