A new university has come into being. Welcome to Singularity University!!!
This University has been established to help advance the concept of Singularity. This is the brainchild of the futurist Ray Kurzweil. He has been the advocate of this “idea”. According to a report in the Wednesday, Feburary 5, 2009 edition of the Financial Times, Singularity envisions a time when “…machines will be able to improve themselves using artifical intelligence and that smarter-than-human computers will solve problems including energy scarcity, climate change and hunger….”
This “University” is being backed by Google, NASA and the Peter Diamond, the X-Prize CEO. It will provide a platform for this notion of singularity to be studied further. Please check them out at: http://singularityu.org/.
We are truly living in exciting times!!!
