For questions related to the technological singularity (for the astronomical singularity use tag "Black Hole")

A hypothetical event in which computers (especially AI) begin designing their replacements with ever increasing capabilities. This leads to an accelerated technological advancement where smart machines design successive generations of increasingly powerful machines, creating intelligence far exceeding human intellectual capacity and control. Because the capabilities of such a superintelligence may be impossible for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is the point beyond which events may become unpredictable or even unfathomable to human intelligence.
