The Singularity may not be near October 28, 2010Posted by Summerspeaker in Technology, The Singularity, Transhumanism.
Mike Treder reminds transhumanists of the essential uncertainty of our dreams in a clever article. I advise against counting on artificial intelligence or molecular manufacturing. While technological development could theoretically do everything the extropians claim, any serious plan for the future must work with what we’ve currently got. As I’ve written in the past, there’s no need to wait for nanofactories to produce material abundance. Rational use of existing technology would produce a life of leisure, health, and plenty for every human being on the planet.
