Abstract

Toby Walsh in “The Singularity May Never Be Near” gives six arguments to support his point of view that technological singularity may happen but that it is unlikely. In this paper, we provide analysis of each one of his arguments and arrive at similar conclusions, but with more weight given to the “likely to happen” probability.

Subject Areas

autogenous intelligence; bootstrap fallacy; recursive self-improvement; self-modifying software; singularity
