Singularity:

The technological singularity occurs as artificial intelligences surpass human beings as the smartest and most capable life forms on the Earth. Technological development is taken over by the machines, who can think, act and communicate so quickly that normal humans cannot even comprehend what is going on. The machines enter into a “runaway reaction” of self-improvement cycles, with each new generation of A.I.s appearing faster and faster. From this point onwards, technological advancement is explosive, under the control of the machines, and thus cannot be accurately predicted (hence the term “Singularity”). – Ray Kurzweil

Regarding the Atom bomb, Robert Oppenheimer said:

When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it, and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success.”
