The Singularity is Near Movie

November 19, 2008

The Sony PS3 processes at 205 gflops (205 billion calculations per second).

The new Jaguar supercomputer performs 1 pedaflop (1 quadrillion calculations per second).

Scientists predict that humans operate at 100 pedaflops (100 quadrillion calculations per second). The singularity is on it’s way.

Speaking of which, Ray Kurzewil‘s favorite topic (the Singularity) is being made into a movie and is coming out next year The Singularity is Near movie.

  1. If we operate in PEDAFLOPS, then Winnie operates in PEDA-PLOPS. Plop plop plop plop plop.

    P.S. The singularity is stupid, just like Kurzweil and his treadmill.

    I think Kurzweil is right, but I’m not sure about how “near” the singularity really is. He might be a little too hopeful that he’ll achieve immortality before he dies.

    And did he have to put his freaky female alter-ego right on the poster? A future with almost limitless potential, and the thing he’s most excited about is a fancy sex change?

    Still, can’t wait to see the movie.

    Yea there’s a few too many variables to be able to confidently guess when the singularity will take place. But I think someday it will.

    ah! but the singularity is already here! the microcosm reflects the macrocosm and vice versa. or as jesus put it: the kingdom of god is within you! we are only reflections or projections of the singularity attempting to discover what we already are!
