The Singularity: Documentary Trailer


(Youtube Direktsingularität, via Imaginary Foundation)

Hier der Trailer zu einer neuen Doku über die Singularität, über den Moment, in dem technologisches Bewusstsein das des Menschen übertrifft. Selbstverständlich mit Ray Kurzweil und voller anderer Futurismus-Spinner. Snip von Youtube:

Within the coming decades we will be able to create AIs with greater than human intelligence, bio-engineer our species and re-design matter through nanotechnology. How will these technologies change what it means to be human?

The Singularity - Will we survive our technology? is a comprehensive documentary showcasing the promises and perils of future technologies such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

Serious thinkers in the science community are wowed by the techno-utopia promises of transcending our biology, merging with our machines, and creating greater than human intelligence.

This film illustrates how these technologies may be achieved within the next two decades then questions what these technologies could mean to humanity. Not only should we be concerned with the unintended consequences of these powerful technologies, we should pause to think about what happens if these technologies actually pan out as anticipated.
