That sounds a bit heavy, how can an event do that you ask? I thought the same too, but I kept listening and I did some research into, I’ll list some resources below;
Basically, the Technological Singularity we are speeding towards is that one where Technology, “The Digital Age” that we are in NOW and have been for the last few decades, accelerates so FAST that it is many times more powerful than we know now and could imagine it being…
It might seem like an exaggeration or scare-mongering, I researched and I made me think back to the 1980’s when I first got into Computing and purchased my first computer, a ZX81 Spectrum. We can use that as an example of the growth of the Digital Age.
A ZX81 Spectrum had the computing power of a gnat! an 8-bit personal home computer released in the United Kingdom in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd and had 16KB of RAM ( memory ) and it was not until 1987 that a ‘floppy disc’ drive was added so you could store / load programs and data without having to key in manually….
I created my first “Hello World….” screen display using that computer…
Now today, some 33 years later, the power of a phone is thousands of times that computer and the supercomputers are trillions of times more powerful… We all carry around a phone that has GigaBytes [ My phone has 16GB, that is 125,000 times larger than I had on the ZX81 ] of data storage and we can access everything digital via WiFi, the last 33 years as seen an explosion in Digital Technology; which I’m sure few saw coming so fast and with such massive changes that have impacted each and every one of us.
Imagine how that growth curve is going to continue; as the Digital Power exceeds that of the human brain and then the whole human race; it’s coming in the next 30 years, the Digital Age is upon us.
This diagram shows it well…
So what does that means in real terms?
We already see the jobs that once were, are disappearing fast, for example, Robots create many more cars than the human engineer, the jobs we thought were here for good, such as Doctors are being replaced with machines. This article from Fortune.com explains it well: http://fortune.com/2012/12/04/technology-will-replace-80-of-what-doctors-do/
For most it will be a surprise, like it came in the night, to the few who prepare it will just be another day. You can prepare yourself by learning the Digital Skills needed to survive in the pre and post-Technological Singularity.
I have been using computers since the early 1980’s and today I am nearing 35 years of computing knowledge, yet I have been training in the latest Digital Skills for the last year, to ensure that I am ready for the Digital challenges ahead.
I don’t say this to scare, I say it to prepare, our education system always needs to keep up with the trends and as with any large organisation, it is slow and lumbering to do so;
I think it’s time for a new wave of education, one that has been around a while yet is small at the moment, both homeschooling and E-Learning / online courses, with some meetup days for sociability;
I see that within the next decade a new breed of education will arise and replace some if not all of the education systems; we will still have our Oxfords and Cambridges and Harvard because some of the individuals learning there know this is coming and will prepare for it….
You have the chance to prepare for it now – today….
I have been preparing for the last year and I’m in a good place to help others Learn the Digital Skills needed to survive in the 21st Century…..

“The Singularity is an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly nonbiological and trillions of times more powerful than it is today—the dawning of a new civilization that will enable us to transcend our biological limitations and amplify our creativity.“
