"We are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth. Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence." 

"It seems plausible that with technology we can, in the fairly near future create (or become) creatures who surpass humans in every intellectual and creative dimension. Events beyond such an event — such a singularity — are as unimaginable to us as opera is to a flatworm."

Vernor Vinge, Hugo Award-winning author of A Fire Upon the Deep and Rainbows End, as well as the 1993 essay "The Coming Technological Singularity", in which he argues that exponential growth in technology will reach a point beyond which we cannot even speculate.
