'The Singularity' Trailer - When Will Computers Surpass Human Intelligence?

The trailer posted above is not a documentary about the singularity we all know about - the one that some propose caused the Big Bang - but the length of time it will take for computers to surpass human intelligence. The film is, as of yet, incomplete and is being developed as the money comes in, so the filmmakers are expecting it to be done by the end of the year 2009.

One idea is that, since technological advancement is far exceeding biological evolution, human intelligence will, in the near future, be eclipsed by that of computer intelligence and artificial intelligence.

You can visit the film's web site for more information.

Within the coming decades we will be able to create AIs with greater than human intelligence, bio-engineer our species and re-design matter through nanotechnology. How will these technologies change what it means to be human?
