Keywords: Singularity, The Law of Accelerating Returns

Discussions on singularity seem to be ambiguous or often done from a single point of view like position talk. To consider singularity objectively and comprehensively, it is necessary to deepen the discussion from a variety of viewpoints. The authors held an event "Viewing Singularity from Various Perspectives" on January 13, 2018. In this paper, based on the discussion at the event, we focus on three perspectives of technology, industry, government, and propose a social structure model. The proposed social structure model maps the concept groups handled mainly by technology, industry, and government in a biaxial manner and gives hierarchical relationships between the concepts. The positions of the consepts on the biaxial plane are expected to change with four operations; Decomposition of concepts, individual development and reinterpretation, spreading, and integration. By interpreting the changes in concepts’ positions as social changes, we are investigating the possibility of contributing to grasping the rapidly changing society. Furthermore, we consider two hypotheses with respect to the proposed model based on the assumption that the concepts are to develop exponentially.One is that the concept we deal with will create diversity from general to professional in the future.Another being that, the concept we deal with directly shifts from local to global.
