The Singularity: Stephen Hawking Predicts Technology Will Lead to End of Human Race
"The matter and energy in our vicinity will become infused with the intelligence, knowledge, creativity, beauty, and emotional intelligence (the ability to love, for example) of our human-machine civilization. Our civilization will then expand outward, turning all the dumb matter and energy we encounter into sublimely intelligent - transcendent - matter and energy. So in a sense, we can say the Singularity will ultimately infuse the universe with spirit."
- Ray Kurzweil, American author, computer scientist, inventor, futurist, and is a director of engineering at Google.
"All of the boundaries are up for grabs. All of the boundaries that have defined us as human beings, boundaries between a human being and an animal and between a human being and a super human being or a god." —Prof. Leon R. Kass, former chairman, President’s Council on Bioethics
Stephen Hawkins predicts artificial intelligence (robots) will reach to a point where it will surpass human capabilities and take off on it's own redesigning itself at an ever increasing rate therefore becoming the dominate intelligence on earth at mankind's peril.
