Sorry, it's not. I mean (1) it *will* change the course, but
(2) a lot of other things have also. So it gives the mistaken
impression that technology changing the course of humanity
hasn't happened before. Or a lot.
Maybe something like: "The Singularity will see a new technology
may changing the course of humanity with unprecedented speed."
