New Site

I’m pleased to announce I’ve updated to a more vibrant site which will include more functionality for me and you both.  Those of you that were subscribed to don’t have to change anything or re-subscribe.  The e-mails from “Through A Trader’s Eyes” will look a little different from now on because they are coming from a different source.  Those of you who read the site through an RSS reader will need to re-subscribe to get the new feeds.  If you’ve bookmarked, there will be no more posts to that site. should be the new bookmark.  I’ll continue to make updates to the site and would encourage any feedback.

A singularity is a point at which an otherwise continuous mathematical progression becomes effectively infinite, implying that all continuous extrapolation breaks down beyond that point. Technological singularity refers to the hypothesis that technological progress will reach such an infinite or extremely high value at a point in the near future.

The idea is inspired by the observation of accelerating change in the development of wealth, technology, and humans’ capability for information processing.[dubious – discuss] Extrapolating these capabilities to the future has led a number of thinkers to envisage the short-term emergence of a self-improving artificial intelligence or superintelligence[1] that is so much beyond humans’ present capabilities that it becomes impossible to understand it with present conceptions.

It is alternately suggested that a singularity could come about through amplification of human intelligence to the point that the resulting transhumans would be incomprehensible to their purely biological counterparts. The technological singularity is posited as a metasystem transition or transcendence to a wholly new regime of mind, society, and technology. (Source: Wikipedia)

Above is the definition of singularity. This video puts it into perspective how fast technology is changing. It’s not just changing but it’s changing at a rapid pace. That will not only affect our lives, but our investments.
