The rate of technical progress amongst humans has been exponentially increasing. According to Ray Kurzweil, as we discover more effective ways to do things, we also discover more effective ways to learn, i.e. language, numbers, written language, philosophy, scientific method, instruments of observation, tallying devices, mechanical calculators, computers, each of these a major advance in our ability to account for information occurring increasingly close together.

Already within the past sixty years, life in the industrialized world has changed almost beyond recognition except for living memories from the first half of the 20th century. This pattern will culminate in unimaginable technological progress in the 21st century. I believe there is a very good chance we will achieve technological singularity as predicted by Vernor Vinge and Ray Kurzweil, a bit more conservatively than Kurzweil’s predictions, within the next 50-60 years. 

Robosingularity will follow this exponential technological advances that happen  in robotics and artificial intelligence. It is the third arm of the exponential technological expansion, after biology and nanotechnology
