Skynet becomes a possibility? … Eight Years until Computer Power Equals Human Thinking?

Recall in the Terminator series when the computer system called Skynet, became “Self Aware” ?

SkynetThe computer in the movie became so fast, powerful, and interconnected, it became its own species or race. In the movie, the computer then commenced to Terminate the human race!

Eight Years Until Computers are Equal to Human Thinking

Here and here we spoke of the incredible goals of Peter Diamandis and his Longevity Institute (extending 30 years to average ages.)

In another associated venture called Singularity Institute, Mr. Diamandis tossed up the following slide, showing that in 8 years computers will be as fast as humans, and by 2050 as fast as the entire Human Race!

Computer Power Expanding

Clearing these hurdles is well within most of our lives, I am all for this continuation of technology and embrace the improvements.

Wonder if anyone else in the room thought the same thing?

Have a Great Day!
