Machines Are Going to Take Over the World, Countdown To Singularity Tells Us How They Do It

Countdown3

The Singularity refers to the moment Artificial Intelligence will exceed that of Human Intelligence and our capacity to control it. Scientists believe this event will take place around the year 2045. Lucky for us, the artists behind Countdown To Singularity are taking this existential threat seriously. Bas van de Poel, the project’s founder and curator, asked contributors to explore the different ways AI could bring us down. The result is a series of scenarios ranging from the development of amoral mechanized weapons systems to the slightly more mundane idea that we could all eventually be turned into paperclips.

Click below for a selection of the submissions. You can also visit the project website or click here to join the likes of Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, and Steve Wozniak in signing the Future of Life Institute’s open letter calling for AI safety research.
