hal9000 Will Artificial Intelligence put my job at risk?It’s a QTWTAIN, a Question To Which The Answer Is No, asked by Jamie Bartlett at the Spectator. But I was struck by this sentence:

According to Google’s Ray Kurzweil, in 2045 we will reach what’s known as ‘Singularity’: the point at which artificial intelligence becomes so advanced that it begins to produce new and ever more advanced versions of itself, leaving us mortals behind.

Update: Omer Lev reminds us of this wonderful, related observation about when it will be possible to copy human consciousness.
