(See in situ)


The so-called "Technological

The so-called "Technological Singularity" will occur in the year 2045 if current trends hold.

"...$1,000 will buy computer power equal to a single brain "by around 2020"[10] while by 2045, the onset of the Singularity, that same amount of money will buy one billion times more power than all human brains combined today.[11]"

Of course, in Frank Herbert's view (the author of the Dune books) intelligent machines led to the anti-technological war, called the Butlerian Jihad.
