Technological singularity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - (Build 20100722150226) The technological singularity hypothesis is that accelerating progress in technologies will cause a runaway effect wherein artificial intelligence will exceed human intellectual capacity and control, thus radically changing or even ending civilization in an event called the singularity. Because the capabilities of such an intelligence may be impossible to comprehend, the technological singularity is an occurrence beyond which events are unpredictable or even unfathomable. The first use of the term "singularity" in this context was by mathematician John von Neumann.
