I agree partially, but I'm sure we've barely scratched the surface on what is possible with the knowledge that we already have and has already been proven by scientists. They might come up with novel solutions that are more or less correct that don't need extensive real world testing and be able to change the world very quickly that way. There are mathematicians who's work is entirely theoretical and haven't been applied to the real world, then suddenly a use is found for their stuff 30-50 years later.

You might want to check out a book like Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom, it could fill in a lot of the blanks for you. But its more about paths to the singularity than the singularity itself. The problem is we don't really know what is going to happen when we reach very rapid technological progress. That's why there is so much speculation and not any actual knowledge of what will happen.

I follow a lot of AI researchers on twitter, occasionally check out https://www.lesswrong.com, try to read some of the research papers, learn about LLMs, transformers, watch some youtube videos to get high level overviews on concepts, watch new releases for big companies like tesla and nvidia. I'm subbed to a lot of AI related subs, but I haven't seen any of extremely high quality. Trying to do the best to position myself in a way to profit off new technology as it is released and try to get to thinking about it before it is released. Also subbed to product specific subs like /r/midjourney and /r/chatGPT

The industrial revolution allowed people to do the work of many, but instead of rampant unemployment more things were produced and created more prosperity. Before then there was no such thing as a middle class. These tools eventually will create even more prosperity. Its not a zero sum game. It increases the size of the pie for everyone.
