Technological singularity spurs lively discussions that lead to the immense power that comes from human creativity. Newton’s F = ma, his theory for how planets revolved around the sun, was not created by a computer.

This video was captured during a 40th anniversary of the microprocessor celebration, where the audience asked tech industry experts what they thought about the concept of “technological singularity,” a term coined by science fiction writer Vernon Vinge and popularized by futurist Ray Kurzweil, who describe the possibility of greater-than-human intelligence through technological means.

Federico Faggin designer of the world’s first microprocessor, Thom Sawicki of Intel Labs and Intel Fellow Shekhar Borkar dispute the real possibility, saying that computers will not surpass human intelligence.
