    The Singularity Is Near -- Sooner or Later

    in Technology

    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the timing of the Technological Singularity:


    ...a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature.Since the capabilities of such an intelligence may be difficult for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is often seen as an occurrence (akin to a gravitational singularity) beyond which the future course of human history is unpredictable or even unfathomable.


    If it is going to happen, one of the critical questions is when. Ramez Naam has recently suggested that it probably won't be any time soon. But William Hertling says don't be too sure -- it could happen a lot faster than we think.


    Who's right? Is the Singularity near?

    in Technology

    Authors R. U. Sirius and Jay Cornell discuss their new book, Transcendence: the Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity. 


    In nearly ninety A-Z entries, Transcendence provides a multilayered look at the accelerating advances in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, genomics, information technology, nanotechnology, neuroscience, space exploration, synthetic biology, robotics, and virtual worlds that are making transhumanism a reality. Entries range from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to Designer Babies and Memory-Editing Drugs. In addition, the book notes historical predecessors and personalities, both in mythology and history--ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It also introduces the culture around Transhumanism, covering all the geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist movement.

    The Declaration of Singularity 2014

    in Technology

    What's the difference between the original Delcaration of Independence and the Speculist's Declaration of Singularity?


    Obviously one has already happened, and one has yet to happen. But what else? A few minor word changes aside, the big difference has to do with when things happen versus when they are declared to have happened.


    What can we make about recent headlines concerning the Turing Test, self-Driving cars, and other developments?  Do they change the Declaration at all?


    Or maybe is it time for a new declaration altogther?

    Beyond the Singularity With Science Fiction's Charles Stross

    in Books

    Charles Stross made his name with the 2005 novel Accelerando, which explores several generations of a single family as they travel through the Singularity -- the time when artificial intelligence and other technologies create beings with godlike intelligence and powers. Stross returns to the theme of machine intelligence with his latest novel Neptune's Brood, a space opera set thousands of years in the future. In Neptune's Brood, the robot successors to the human race attempt to follow a financial trail that might lead to history's greatest scientific breakthrough, or biggest scam. Neptune's Brood takes a science-fiction look at themes we explore every day at Internet Evolution: Machine intelligence, business, and the networked, information economy. Also: Space pirates!

    Author Josh Peck on the Coming Deception

    in News

    Christian evangelists, theologians, and biblical scholars who are paying attention to the bigger picture of world events have been warning of a great deception coming to mankind. It is well documented in the New Testament that many believers within the church will fall victim to a great delusion and deception in the end of days, so great that even the very elect, if it were possible, would be deceived.


    This generation has seen the birth of the “New Age” movement, which evolved from other spiritualties and religions antithetical to Christianity. Despite this disparity, many Christians are the victims of subtle and incremental entrancement by and into belief systems that are not merely false, but pervert the Word of God. Concurrent with the New Age movement is the burgeoning belief that we are not alone in the universe – that there exists other entities from other planetary systems possessing superior intelligence to ours. We see this in the UFO community, and we’ve also seen the Vatican recently engage in scholarly, theological discussion about actually baptizing “extraterrestrials.”


    Today, physicists are utilizing such devices as the large hadron collider at CERN to open portals into other dimensions. Scientists are talking more and more about transhumanism and artificial intelligence, and reaching “singularity.” What’s all of this mean? Join us...


    Josh Peck, the author of Quantum Creation and Cherubim Chariots, explains such issues in layman’s terms.He is a Christian and Biblical researcher with a passion for Bible prophecy. His mission is to wake up the Church to the reality of the Bible, separate Biblical truth from Church tradition, and provide the solid, raw, uncut truth of God's Word to any and all who will listen.
