Convergence singularities: As man becomes machine and machine becomes man

Authors:
Carl Adams

Keywords: convergence singularity, artificial intelligence

Abstract:
Within the AI domain there is discussion on the singularity event, the situation where machines achieve a level of consciousness and intelligence equal to or exceeding that of humans. This paper explores different perspectives on such a singularity. The main contentions are that a) it is a moving target in that using technology man is also expanding human capabilities – as such it is a convergence than a one sided movement; b) it is not one singularity but an array of singularities representing multiple attributes of humans and; c) singularities should be considered in a wider system perspective that takes account of organizational structures, individual motivations and practicalities. This paper provides an Information Systems and autonomic systems perspective on a machine-man/man-machine singularity. The paper hopes to make contribution by extending the discourse on such singularities and raise some practical and philosophical questions for society and policy decision makers.
