SOme here has a thread titled 'Robots have tripled since 2007'
Watch this vid:
Intelligent interaction with an AI, for a given value of intelligence
Scientist are now growing organs of animals, hopefully growing human ones soon from our own cells (I'm desperately waiting for this one to happen).
I prefer Damien Broderick's description, describing the Singularity as the Spike. Plot progress versus time on a graph for any human endeavour (transport or computers come to mind). And yes, PCs are coming to an end with silicon, but once upon a time we did everything we could with sail... and then steam came along, and transport continued to ramp up, in terms of speed and carrying capacity. We find ways.
