Steve Alan Edwards, Surviving the Singularity (“Just over the horizon are hurricane force winds of change– “change comparable to the rise of human life on earth” according to mathematician and computer scientist Vernor Vinge, also the author of such science fiction classics as True Names and Marooned in Real Time. The cause of the change he envisions is “the imminent creation by technology of entities with greater than human intelligence” an event he expects to occur between the years 2005- 2030. With super human intelligence in charge of technological progress, progress itself becomes much more rapid and involves the creation of still more intelligent “beings” on an ever shortening time scale.”
