Salim Ismail on the Singularity

Salim Ismail is the executive director of Singularity University. He explains that the U researches how to understand non-linear phenomena. I ask him whether that understanding has to be emergent.

  2. Have any of these Singularity-obsessed people ever produced an actionable bit of information or provided insight in a way that was helpful to anyone?

    As much as I find the topic fascinating, most of these people just seems like whisker-scratchers standing around pontificating about technology and culture while real scientists and real technologist are actually moving the rock forward. It appears to me that we have accelerated our future along just fine without these non-doing “thinkers.”

  4. Walter, spurred by your question I read Ray Kurweil’s bio in Wikipedia. It’s clear he’s been an extremely active contributor over the years, and not just scratching whiskers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Kurzweil
