The Pink Goo Disaster

Author: Helen

Imagine that Vernor Vinge’s “singularity”actually happens. In other words, in approximately 2020, artificial intelligence overtakes human intelligence.

Now, one of the essential characteristics of the Singularity is that we can’t predict what will happen then. But what if, as the comments on this Electrolite post suggest, the AI that overtakes us is evolved from Spambots… and “make money” or “sell stuff” is their only aim? Oh, dear. Hope they’re wrong.

Good spine-chilling fun.
