Default Singularity - The Fight Between Past and Future



The History

Computers are getting faster. Everybody knows that. Also, computers are getting faster faster – that is, the rate at which they’re getting faster is increasing. True? True. So if computers are getting so much faster, so incredibly faster there might conceivably come a moment when they are capable of something comparable to human intelligence. Artificial Intelligence. All that horsepower could be put in the service of emulating whatever it is our brains are doing when they create consciousness not just doing arithmetic very quickly or composing piano music but also driving cars, writing books, making ethical decisions, appreciating fancy paintings, making witty observations at cocktail parties.

If you can swallow that idea, then all bets are off. From that point, there’s no reason to think computers would stop getting more powerful. They would keep on developing until they were far more intelligent than we are. Their rate of development would also continue to increase, because they would take over their slower-thinking human creators. Imagine a computer scientist that was itself a super intelligent computer. It would work incredibly quickly. It could draw on huge amounts of data effortlessly.

Probably. It’s impossible to predict the behavior of these smarter-than-human intelligences with which we might one day share the planet, because if you could, you’d be as smart as they would be. But there are a lot of theories about it. Maybe we’ll merge with them to become super intelligent cyborgs, using computers to extend our physical abilities.

Maybe the artificial intelligences will help us treat the effects of old age and prolong our life spans indefinitely. Maybe we’ll scan our consciousness’s into our computers will turn on humanity and annihilate us. The one thing all these theories have in common is the transformation of our species into something that is no longer recognizable as such to humanity circa 2011. This transformation has a name: the Singularity.

Of course, a lot of people think the Singularity is nonsense a fantasy, wishful thinking, a Silicon Valley version of the Evangelical story of the Rapture, spun by a man who earns his living making outrageous claims and backing them up with pseudoscience. Most of the serious critics focus on the question of whether a computer can truly become intelligent. The field of artificial intelligence, or A.I, is devoted to this question. But A.I doesn’t currently produce the kind of intelligence we associate with humans or even with talking computers in movies. Actual AIs tend to be able to master only one highly specific domain, like interpreting search queries or playing chess. They operate with an extremely specific frame of reference. They don’t make conversation at parties. They’re intelligent, but only if you define intelligence in a vanishingly narrow way. The year everyone believes Singularity will occur is in the year 2045.

The Picture

Ever since that article was made people have prepared their children for the time when the human age would end and the computer age would begin. Yet everyone did not believe it. Late one night every computer was shut down ten seconds later they all rebooted with new software that the users didn’t even download. This software was called Falcon Eye. F.E. was a program created by the Government in the year of 2022. The program was supposed to be used as a spy that could easily hack into other computers and spy on it. It also had good intuition where it could predict different people’s movements.

Yet it was a fail attempt. The year the software was activated was 2044. Everyone wondered how the software downloaded itself to every computer. In 2045 Falcon Eye hacked into every computer and overthrew every government in the World. Once it did that it made a group called T.F for Technology Fighters who went around the world and searched for people who didn’t obey Falcon Eye.


The Plot


Nomad Rebel

The year is 2059; you are a Rebel living in the wilderness with other Rebels away from technology. You know that if you even step into a city and Falcon Eye spots you, you will die. Yet you know that you have to stop Falcon Eye’s terror against the world but you have not found a way. Not only are you a Rebel but you are a nomad because if you stay in one spot too long T.F. will spot you and kill you.

Technology Fighters
You are on your own will hunting Nomad Rebels. You know you have a certain limit of people to kill or Falcon Eye will hunt for your life as well. (Falcon Eye gave them power, equipment, and training in return for a contract on a certain amount of popel in a certain time). You can hunt alone or with other T.F’s.

Default Re: Singularity - The Fight Between Past and Future

Name: Leo Adams

Gender: Male

Age: 43

Group: Technology Fighters

Equipment 1: His right eyes (which he covers) have the ability to scan anything and tell the temperature and a short summary. This proves useful when searching for Rebels because it can have X-Ray and have a detailed file about every person alive.

Equipment 2: His right arm is metal which gives him the ability of deflecting bullets and also more powerful punches.

Equipment 3: He has 2 CZ75’s which can cycle into almost any type of bullet to shoot and also one AK74u

Appearance: His appearance
He is 6 foot 3 and weighs about 195 pounds. He is also very strong with a medium muscular tone.

Personality: Leo Adams is very smart. He never underestimates his opponent no matter their given appearance. Leo is also very brave and would anything to help his fellow troops. Leo always keeps his cool and practically has an unlimited morale. Leo also will usually never take no for answer except when it comes to obeying his generals.

History: Leo grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana yet soon moved away to Atlanta, Georgia. At the age of seven he received a black belt in Martial Arts. Leo still kept up his classes. When he was 18 he went to Japan to complete in their Bushido swordsman Tournament and got to 1st place. At the age of 19 he joined the Marines and then was promoted to the Navy Seals.

On the night of the Singularity. Leo was right in front of his computer and as the computer restarted itself the light was so much that his right eye went out. He then went to go and check on others but stumbled into the wrong neighborhood. The people then jumped him and took out his right arm. After a year of being in the hospital he was returned home to find a message.

The message was from something called Falcon Eye saying to go to the Pentagon and show the message. He knew if it said Pentagon it could be a situation of National Security. When he went and showed the message he went into an underground place and met former Army troops, Marines, and Navy Seals. He knew all these people were top of the line. The President then came in. Leo could see there was something wrong with him because his eyes were glowing blue. His voice also sounded different.

The President told them that the Singularity had finally come. The President explained that in every country there government was overthrew and replaced with Falcon Eye. Yet they would be some people to resist the new government so a new organization would be made and everyone in the room would be apart of it.

Leo didn’t really have a problem and he was soon given a date to come back. When he did they gave him his equipment and put him through all types of surgery and training. When he was done he was one of the top people. He was given two years to kill 500 people in the Resistance or he himself who be an outlaw of the country.

Other: He also sports a long cloak that reach to his knees when traveling. Ricardo, Ricardo oh how I love you so, JK 
