The Singularity Hypothesis: A Scientific and Philosophical Assessment

Springer has commissioned an edited volume about the singularity hypothesis and related questions, such as the intelligence explosion, acceleration, transhumanism, and whole brain emulation. The book shall examine answers to central questions which reformulate the singularity hypothesis as a coherent and falsifiable conjecture, examine its empirical value, and investigate its the most likely consequences, in particular those associated with existential risks.

The volume aims to use the standard toolkits of scientific enquiry and analytic philosophy to answer questions about the singularity hypothesis. Chapters will consist of peer-reviewed essays addressing the scientifically literate nonspecialist in a language that is divorced from speculative, apocalyptic, and irrational claims.
