You and I both know those aren't a Singularity,
THAT, is exactly the point.
they's a different designation for them, and they certainly don't have the capability of creating such rapid change we can't predict it.
Point again. thanks.
As you know, the present technologies are built on the older ones, so the growth had to happen first to reach the point we're at now.
This has to be the most oblivious statement I have seen from you yet. Can you explain why transportation technology, with it's rapid development last century, did not lead to a transportation singularity? What happened to exponential growth? Explain why for info-tech, but not for transportation?
I already answered that question, but this will describe it in detail:
