SF Reading Material

Eric Rescorla at Educated Guesswork lists a few books he likes and that you might like if you like Vernor Vinge (and science/speculative fiction). Vinge deals with various types of artificial intelligence and an event he calls the Singularity. He’s both a scientist and fiction writer.

This is all new stuff to me. The concept of the Singularity is a unique point where there will be a major acceleration of technological progress. Possibly AI. Possibly human integrated with computer. But once this Singularity occurs, technological change will be ever faster.
