Human intelligence evolved slowly. Artificial Intelligence evolves at an astonishingly
rapid speed. Natural procreation is a slow method to improve intelligence therefore
human generations progress slowly. Human minds evolved over millions of years whereas
Artificial Intelligence needs the tiniest fraction of the human evolutionary period
to reach then surpass human intellectual capacity. Each year new generations of computers
help scientists and technologists to solve problems beyond ordinary human brainpower.
When intelligent computers are able to think for themselves they will quickly create
newer computers with increasingly bigger intellects, a positive feedback. There will
be no scarcity of intelligence, no limits.
Our increasing level of expertise allows us to cram more progress into our current
year than we did the previous year. Based on the 2001 rate of progress we will see
at least 20,000 years of progress between 2001 and 2100. The intellectual barrier
will be broken. Escape velocity achieved. The intellectual boom will be awesome.
Explosive 2045 is coming.
