Debate on Singularity – http://io9.com/is-it-time-to-give-up-on-the-singularity-1586599368

Ramez Naam, The author of Nexus: My other issue is with the word ‘Singularity’. You asked me to define it. Well, a ‘Singularity’ in mathematics is a divide-by-zero moment, when the value goes from some finite number to infinity in an eye blink. In physics, it’s a breakdown in our mathematical models at a black hole. Smarter-than-human AI would be very cool.
