Is the Singularity Near?
Nick Bostrom   Sep 23, 2009   All in the Mind  

Imagine a future where computers exceed our own intelligence; where problem solving is no longer limited by human thinking—what then? It’s a moment in technological time some call ‘The Singularity’. But how much is technological reality, and how much fantasy? Science writer Mike McRae catches up with AI researchers and sci-fi writers to ponder the possibilities and probabilities for the radio program All in the Mind. (MP3)
