The technological singularity —also, simply, the singularity  —is a hypothetical point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization.

Good 's "intelligence explosion" model predicts that a future superintelligence will trigger a singularity. The concept and the term "singularity" were popularized by Vernor Vinge in his essay The Coming Technological Singularity , in which he wrote that it would signal the end of the human era, as the new superintelligence would continue to upgrade itself and would advance technologically at an incomprehensible rate.
