Ray Kurzweil argues that in the next few decades humanity will reach a breakthrough point in technology, the point when machine intelligence surpasses human intelligence: the Singularity. In this excerpt from the opening pages of Chapter One, Kurzweil introduces the basic concepts of The Singularity and the theory of accelerating returns.

This app provides a robust multimedia lesson centered on The Singularity is Near (Ray Kurzweil, 2005). Using this app, students can read an excerpt from the novel, view a video lesson modeling a student discussion of the text, and write a thoughtful response based on a writing prompt. Teachers may also allow students to participate in a peer review of their writing, with an accompanying rubric.
