The idea of technological singularity has gone beyond science fiction as it enters present-day debates about the future coexistence of robots and humans. Is artificial intelligence a threat or benefit to mankind? When could the singularity come about? Is it apocalypse or utopia? Today, there are no certain answers to these questions but what we can do is to investigate all possible scenarios. Raymond Kurzweil, a famous American futurist, predicts in his bestseller The Singularity Is Near the merging of human and artificial intelligence. So what is your scenario?
