Accelerating developments in computing, information production and storage, and artificial intelligence are rapidly approaching a point of inflection. This point is commonly known as "the Singularity."
However, advances in nanotechnology and biotechnology are also potential pathways towards the Singularity. Like computing, artificial intelligence, and the birth of "Big Data," progress in these areas has also been exponential in nature and has kept pace with growth in these other fields.
If things continue at this rate, the result could be sudden and explosive. It would feel like a "revolution" to people looking back on it, and it's generally agreed that, beyond the point of this anticipated Singularity, nothing will ever be the same again.
In fact, it could bring an end to death itself.
