Första collegekursen om Singulariteten

by

Kurzweilai.net skriver idag om den första collegekursen om Singulariteten:

This summer, Rutgers University plans to offer ”Special Topics in Sociology: Singularity Studies”, the first accredited college course on the Singularity and associated technologies. The three-credit summer course will feature online lectures and discussions every Monday and Wednesday evening throughout the summer and is available to students internationally. The textbook will be The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology by Ray Kurzweil, supplemented by online articles appropriate to individual lectures.

I kursbeskrivningen kan man läsa att: ”This course explores the ideas of futurists who believe that the exponential growth of the speed of computer chips and other technologies will lead to self-improving artificial general intelligence and an unprecedented rate of social change known as ”the singularity”.”
