|"Within thirty years, we
will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly
after, the human era will be ended." Aus: "The
Coming Technological Singularity: How to Survive in the Post-Human Era", 1993.
"The Coming Technological Singularity".
|"It seems plausible that if
computer hardware continues to improve, in the near historical future we could
create computer systems that have the processing power of the human brain. If
we could also solve the much harder problem of organizing that processing power
to behave like a person, then we would have a machine equivalent of the human
brain. By itself, this would not be beyond imagining, since we already can make
human-equivalent brains, namely by childbirth."
