Summary/Abstract: We are at a point in the creative evolution of humanity in which we can see the dawn of a new type of consciousness and of self-awareness that would provoke humanity to a redefinition of itself: Artificial Intelligence. The moment of the emergence of self-aware artificial intelligence, whose computing capacity exceeds the human power is defined as Technological Singularity. The volume Filosofia singularităţii. Creierul global, o etică a gândirii fără om [Philosophy of singularity. Global brain, an ethics of thinking without the human] published by Eikon Publishing House in 2016, is a first attempt in philosophy and the Romanian culture of philosophizing on the technology of artificial intelligence, with particular reference to the technological singularity.
