What do you think about singularity?

Hello I've always been a technology freak and was kinda amazed when I read about singularity from this article http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2048138-1,00.html.
In short Singularity is when we created something that is smart then us human, it might be an AI or other stuff. It will drasticly increase the speed we make new technology and will be a great leap for us. I haven't been able to read much more at the moment. It's not fiction and we will get it sooner or later. Might be around 2045 as some predict. Some other interesting things are that Nasa have made an universe about just singularity that is sponsored by many companies like Google. So it looks the interest is huge.

What do you think about this? Will it be great? Will we make an AI that destroy us? (I don't think so) What do you think we will get out of it?

Im allways up to new things. This "Singularity" might not be that a bad idea.
