http://youtu.be/53K1dMyslJg Singularity is the moment when artificial intelligence progresses to the point that it has surpassed human intelligence and just like the event horizon of a black hole, once you reach it the results are to say the least unfathomable.

The Rise of Artificial Intelligence is a great PBS video that takes a look at some of the possibilities.Note From Muted: Every so often we come across videos that move our emotions, challenge our minds, and fill our spirits.

It will feature sports, motor, and cultural related videos, but if you have a topic you would like included please drop us a line.

In this new book the award winning writer Michael Largo updates all those which have gone before to create a stunning volume for the 21st century. Exceptional.
