To us as humanity, the presence of the Singularity becomes obvious in the 21st century based on the collective and individual observation that a lot of technological trends are accelerating faster and faster. Look around you! Although there are a number of such trends that in and of themselves have the potential for deeply transforming our collective lives, the Bio, Info and Nano (BIN) instances are worth considering:
1. Bio-technology and Genetic Engineering: What happens as we are able to understand and to design genetically engineered organisms freely? And we make bodies or new life forms with whatever attributes we want, what next?
2. Informatics and Artificial Intelligence: The pervasive anywhere/anytime digital computing and connectivity via mobile telephones, the internet and satellite navigation has now created a holistic cybersphere where we live our visible and tangible lives both at the physical and non-physical levels simultaneously. What happens as computers become smarter than we are in certain critical areas? What happens as those computers are a million times smarter than any of us in certain critical areas? What can they do that we are not even able to comprehend?
3. Nanotechnology: This ultimately allows us complete control over physical matter, so that we can step-by-step build any physical object we may imagine or require, at near-zero marginal cost. What are the implications?
