The Singularity in artificial intelligence (AI) is the inflection point where machines advance beyond human intelligence and thus become self-sufficie supported by increasingly transparent development and the collaborative efforts of individual data science teams, technology companies and institutions. Such innovations can learn and become. — Singularity Hub (@singularityhub) Ma “Note that we might achieve human-level AGI, radical health-span extension and other cool stuff well before a singularity—especially if we choose to throttle AGI development rate for a while in order to increase the odds of a beneficial singularity,” he writes.

In a development that could shed new light on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a Hollywood movie producer is shopping new, long-hidden footage of .

"The Singularity Is Near" is probably the most comprehensive book if you are looking for an introduction. Not to say that it's the most interesting or anything. The concepts in it are common knowledge for futurist types these days. But if you need an intro I can't think of any better book. The word “singularity” was popularized in a book by Ray Kurzweil, who uses it to refer to an impending revolution in artificial intelligence (AI).

The main goal in most problems of singularity theory is to understand the dependence of some objects of analysis, geometry, physics, or other science (functions, varieties, mappings, vector or tensor fields, differential equations, models, etc.) on parameters.

Singularities arise naturally in a huge number of different areas of mathematics and science. As a consequence, singularity theory lies at the crossroads of paths that connect many of the most important areas of applications of mathematics with some of its most abstract regions.

The main goal. Get this from a library. New Developments in Singularity Theory. [D Siersma; C T C Wall; V Zakalyukin] -- Singularities arise naturally in a huge number of different areas of mathematics and science. As a consequence, singularity theory lies at the crossroads of.

In mathematics, singularity theory studies spaces that are almost manifolds, but not quite.A string can serve as an example of a one-dimensional manifold, if one neglects its thickness. A singularity can be made by balling it up, dropping it on the floor, and flattening it.

In some places the flat string will cross itself in an approximate "X" shape. The points on the floor where it does. New Developments in Singularity Theory Singularities arise naturally in many areas of mathematics and science. As a consequence, Singularity theory lies at the crossroads of paths that connect many important areas of applications of mathematics with some of its most abstract regions.

This volume explores some of these. The authors offer here an up to date guide to the topic and its main applications, including a number of new results. It is very convenient for the reader, a carefully prepared and extensive bibliography makes it easy to find the necessary details when needed.

The books (EMS 6 and EMS 39) describe a lot of interesting topics. Solution: Let’s deﬁne the number by the formula (). Suppose that. Substantial results and exciting new developments within the subject have continued to flow in the intervening years, while the theory has embodied more and more applications.

This programme will bring together experts within the field and those from adjacent areas where singularity theory has existing or potential application. The idea of technological singularity, and what it would mean if ordinary human intelligence were enhanced or overtaken by artificial intelligence.

The idea that human history is approaching a “singularity”—that ordinary humans will someday be overtaken by artificially intelligent machines or cognitively enhanced biological intelligence, or both—has moved from the realm of science.

Another aspect of modern General Relativity is that at the time of the Big Bang (i.e. the initial state of the Universe) was a singularity. Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking both developed. Disasters are here first destructive singularities that create space for new developments in the sense of innovations as productive singularities.

Singularities and complexity. Closely related is the notion of singularity with the concept of complexity. J.C. Maxwell has already pointed out that a system has all the more singular points, the. The news has been turning into science fiction for a while now.

TVs that watch the watcher, growing tiny kidneys, 3D printing, the car of tomorrow. There is also this very nice book by Greuel, Lossen, and Shustin that takes a more complex algebraic approach and has a focus on deformations of singularities. It is very example based which is great for a lot of readers.

A google search reveals the full book linked here. Finally, I would recommend Dimca's book Sheaves in Topology. The focus. The Singularity School and Conference took place in Luminy, Marseille, from January 24th to February 25th More than mathematicians from over 30 countries converged to discuss recent developments in singularity theory.

that the development of all Singularity technologies (or, The Singularity is Near; Viking Books: New Y ork, NY, but general formal theory of fun and intrinsic motivation and creativity. The technological singularity—also, simply, the singularity —is a hypothetical point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization.

According to the most popular version of the singularity hypothesis, called intelligence explosion, an upgradable intelligent agent will eventually enter a "runaway.

Ray Kurzweil is, by all accounts, a genius. He holds nineteen honorary doctorates, has founded a half-dozen successful companies, and was a major contributor to. One theory propounded by roboticist Hans Moravec of Carnegie Mellon University suggests that robots will become a new artificial species of beings, and that it.
