Artificial Intelligence, the Popular Imaginary, and New Inequalities


Abstract The quest for singularity through Artificial Intelligence is often heralded as the ultimate frontier of technological advancement. However, with the techno-scientific breakthroughs moving at an increasingly fast velocity, the ethical, environmental, and human-oriented impact is often neglected.
