Futurists, Polymaths and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) Researchers have contributed to the discussion of a Technological Singularity – a theoretical moment in time marking the end of the human era, as a new machine superintelligence upgrades itself and advances technologically at an incomprehensible rate. Many contributors believe this will occur by 2041, and all humans know this is not far away. However, key authors argue that it is difficult or impossible for present-day humans to predict what human beings’ lives would be like in a post-singularity world. 

As Dentists, Prosthodontists, Health Care Professionals, Educators and as citizens, we embrace benefits of technology and yet we live in fear of its impact on our personal freedoms and livelihoods. This paradox is what drives the progression of technological advances and its tempering by social and ethical values. Health care and education are major sectors in AIML research and development and dentistry and prosthodontics are prime target disciplines.

This presentation will offer seven predictions across clinical, technological, social and vocational topic areas, and is the extended version of Dr. Hooi’s invited lecture at the recent International College of Prosthodontists Virtual Scientific Meeting.
