Glenn Reynolds over on http://www.instapundit.com/ refers to hearing the Singularity dismissed as such. That got a chuckle from me. I was listening to this WEEK in TECH this morning and the Singularity was one of the things they discussed. This is something that’s always fascinated me as I’m not sure where my beliefs fall. Kind of funny to talk about beliefs when you’re discussing robots. But that’s really what it is. Do you believe a machine can have a soul, or can it only emulate one. What is a soul. Does it matter? To me, these are key questions in figuring out who will be in charge once a machine becomes self aware. If nothing else, the next twenty years will be very interesting.
