Wild Card's description 
The “technological singularity” is a concept advocated by Ray Kurzweil and other futurists (it was first introduced by the mathematician and Science Fiction writer Vernor Vinge). The basic idea is that due to the exponential growth the capabilities of information technologies leads to a “singularity”, when the power of these capabilities will be enormous and will outperform all aspects of human intelligence.
