According to futurist Ray Kurzweil and other transhumanists, the development of technology is accelerating exponentially. At some point, according to Kurzweil and his followers, a point, the Singularity, will be reached, beyond which the future cannot be predicted because intelligences greater than those of humans will be created.
Produced in collaboration with Kurzweil and Stephen Hawking, this documentary details the Singularity, an era when machines will be smarter than humans.
Will mankind as a species suffer the fate of the draft horse, the cochineal louse and the medicinal leech… a curiosity from the distant past that has become superfluous? Kurzweil thinks so… and the man knows very well what he is talking about.
