Can we ever artificially create an intelligence that will surpass the human intelligence?

    Dec 9 2011: Pankaj, Kurzweil has had a lot to say on this. (Check out the documentary Trancendent Man.)

    There is much discussion about the singularity. But ideologically, what is it?

    The singularity has been defined as when we will depend on technology to keep up with the pace of technology's growth. Which, if you look at it, has ALREADY OCCURED. For example, I use, more accurately, I NEED, an RSS feed reader to keep up with the developments and pace of growth in my field. I require this information to stay competative in my field, thus I am dependent on a technology to keep up with technology.

    So, if this is the singularity, it didn't take too much intelligence to overshadow my own!
