The Father of Artificial Intelligence Says "Singularity Is 30 Years Away"

We are told that the singularity is coming. So, what actually is singularity? It is considered to be that awaited point in time in our very near future when advances in artificial intelligence (AI) lead to the creation of a machine smarter than humans.

Everyone predicts the singularity is soon to come, majorly 15-20 years.  But, the real question is, is the singularity actually on its way? 

At the World Government Summit in Dubai, J├╝rgen Schmidhuber, the father of AI said, "the singularity is just 30 years away, if the trend doesn't break, and there will be rather cheap computational devices that have as many connections as your brain but are much faster."

Imagine a cheap little device that can compute as much data as all human brains taken together. Well, this may become a reality in just 50 years from now. "And there will be many, many of those. There is no doubt in my mind that AIs are going to become super smart," he adds.

Today, the world faces a number of complex challenges from global warming to the refugee crisis. These are the problems that, over time, will affect everyone on the planet, deeply and irreversibly. But the real change is the one that will influence the way we respond to each one of those crises will happen elsewhere.

"All of this complexity pales against this truly important development of our century, which is much more than just another industrial revolution." Schmidhuber says. "It is something that transcends humankind and life itself."

Soon, there will be an element of randomness to that crucial leap between a powerful machine and artificial life. And while we may not be able to predict exactly when, all evidence points to the fact that the singularity will happen.
