For Singularity is the phase or event

For a long time technical singularity has been the plot of a number of tv shows(Battlestar Galactica), movies(Automata), and novels(The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect). How this issue is represented makes it difficult for people to take it seriously, some people do not know what singularity is, which leads to the question, what is singularity exactly? Singularity is the phase or event in which the invention of artificial super-intelligence (ASI) will radically change human civilization 1,p.1-2. According to 4 Badly programmed superintelligence is one of human extinction scenarios. Many public figures like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk expressed concern over this issue, Hawking said, “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race” 2. With the way technology has been evolving and the steady progress in AI research recently, developing a strong artificial intelligence could be done in the future, in fact, there were four polls conducted in 2012 and 2013, which suggested that the median estimate was a fifty per cent chance that full artificial intelligence would be developed by 2040-2050 3, p. 555–572. Since singularity could endanger humans, it is important to educate people on this issue and to represent it in a more serious manner. In this research, I will explain what is singularity and how it can happens, I will discuss the public opinion and see how far we are willing to trust machines, and I will represent some methods to ensure the safety of AI systems.
