Hoping for immortality? More specifically, the arrival of the singularity—that crucial moment when machines attain superhuman intelligence and we will be able to upload our brains to achieve indefinite life spans (although it may not be life as we currently know it)? In a riff on the best-selling "Left Behind" series, IEEE has issued a special edition exploring the likelihood of the Singularity occurring within our lifetimes -- with tantalizing titles such as The Consciousness Conundrum, Rupturing the Nanotech Rapture, andThe Singularity: Neither Heaven nor Hell.
Whether or not you are a “believer”, it is definitely worth the read.
