What Singularity Weblog is all about:
Singularity Weblog is not meant to provide definitive answers, but rather, to ask the tough questions in an attempt to generate discussion, provoke thought and stir the imagination. It aims to spark a conversation about the impact of technology, exponential growth and artificial intelligence where everyone's opinions and participation are greatly encouraged.
Here Socrates will not shy to provide his strong opinion but will place no claim on its superiority. His goal is to get you actively involved in the ever-evolving conversation about the future of humanity.
Thus, this blog's value may be not so much in the answers it provides, but in the Questions it raises — the kind that everybody could or should be asking.
In addition, Singularity Weblog will also:
- Post relevant articles by Socrates and his friends.
- Publish podcast interviews with the best scientists, writers, entrepreneurs, film-makers, journalists, philosophers and artists.
- Bring attention to relevant news stories, films, media, and scientific developments.
- Give you a platform to write and share your own great content.
Together we can create a better future, better you!
