How Technological Singularity will Change Schools

John von Neumann was the first to see it coming: eventually, the capacity of machine intelligence would surpass that of the human race. His work with algorithms and quantum mechanics opened the door for exponential growth in computers. As people and computers raced toward super-intelligence, computers would eventually win out, leaving humans behind. That is the moment of singularity. Our collective body of knowledge is doubling at a rate of every twelve months; that number will narrow to every twelve hours before we reach technological singularity. Because schools are in the knowledge business, there are some far-reaching implications for what and how schools teach.
