Today our staff meeting took a bit of a, shall we say, odd turn.
We started by talking about a speaker who was in town, then IT and other related technological fields which led into the technological singularity.
For those who don't know what the singularity is defined as, it is the 'hypothesis that the invention of artificial superintelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.' In other words, the moment robots become smarter than humans.
In any case, Toni, the ever so wise and optimistic Professional Development Center Manager thinks that all will be well. Humans will always have control over artificial intelligence and robots will make life easier for humans. Adrian, the ever so wise and pragmatic assistant believes artificial intelligence and robots will eventually enslave human beings.
Which team are you on? #teamToni or #teamAdrian?
