What Is Singularity?

Do you hear the word “Singularity” so much these days? I do. So, what is it? Singularity may refer following concepts; mathematics, complex analysis, algebraic geometry, science, television … etc. I’m interested in technological singularity which aims to develop machines smarter than human intelligence.

The word Singularity sounds like a something mystic and the concept behind it reminds me the movie The Matrix. I don’t believe it’d happen as long as I’m alive. Despite its probability to happen there are huge investments on this project like The Singularity Institute and Nasa – Google companion Singularity University.

Assume that somehow singularity succeeds and smarter machines are developed. Now the question is “what happens when these smart machines seek intelligent systems?”
