The Introduction of Robin's insightful article reads:

"Many technological enthusiasts, impressed by the potential of various envisioned technologies, have speculated that technology may soon become so productive as to induce a "singularity", a period of extremely rapid growth. (A collection of speculations can be found here and here.)"

Robin addresses how rapid this may come about and what it would take for technology to propel the economy to grow so fast. A great read!
