“The theory of technological singularity predicts a point in time when humans lose control over their technological inventions and subsequent developments due to the rise of machine consciousness and, as a result, their superior intelligence. Reaching singularity stage, in short, constitutes artificial intelligence’s (AI’s) greatest threat to humanity. Unfortunately, AI singularity is already underway.” [editor’s note: It got underway the first time a human (or ancestor of humanity) used a tool, became inevitable (barring human extinction beforehand) at that same moment, and whether it’s “unfortunate” or not is entirely a matter of subjective valuation – TLK] (05/15/23)
