SINGULARITY: iPhone or iDeath?
SINGULARITY at GOGBOT shows how artists, scientists and designers are working with this controversial concept. Do they consider the Singularity as a threat, a warning, as overrated phenomena, or as an endless possibility to enrich our world, to perfection our bodies and let men and machine merge into a new future…Does Singularity lead to a utopia, a nightmare, or is there nothing to worry about?
