Vernor Vinge – Foresight and the Singularity – Interview

Interview with renowned author Vernor Vinge – about the Technological Singularity, ways to think about it, strategic forecasting, future studies and risk.

Vinge is an emeritus professor of mathematics at San Diego State University and considered one of the worlds greatest science fiction writers: a five-time winner of the Hugo Award, science fiction’s most prestigious honor! Vinge’s stories explore themes including deep space, the future, and the singularity, a term he famously coined for the future emergence of a greater-than-human intelligence brought about by the advance of technology.
