Artilects

Artilects: artificial intellects, i.e. godlike massively intelligent machines with intellectual capacities trillions of trillions of times above the human level.

Via From Cosmism to deism | KurzweilAli by Hugo de Garis

"Robot artificial intelligence is evolving a million times faster than human intelligence. This is a consequence of Moore’s law, which states that the electronic performance of chips is doubling every year or so, whereas it took a million years for our human brains to double their capacities.

It is therefore likely that it is only a matter of time before our machines become smarter than we are. It is also likely that this development will occur this century if humanity chooses to allow it to happen.
