The Technological Singularity

Based partially upon Moore’s Law, it is the theoretical event when an Artificial Intelligence that has become self-aware reaches a potential to increase its own technology and intelligence exponentially until a moment at which it develops relatively god-like omnipotence.

In other words, it’s when the technology curve goes vertical.

Remember when Ash screwed Ripley?  Whether it’s Arthur C. Clarke’s HAL 9000, Asimov’s V.I.K.I., SkyNet, or Rosey from the Jetsons, haven’t we learned that an artificial intelligence will jack you over if given half the chance?

SkyNet is always listening…and waiting.
