Hi everyone, I'm French and I have a problem with to/for.

What's the difference between these two sentences : "Programming for *" and "Programming to *" where * could be technological singularity for example?

Thanks.

You have not given us sentences, Dede – you have just given us two noun/preposition combinations. Both can possibly be inserted into sentences (different sentences, of course). Please supply the sentence within which you wish to use these phrases.

I can't imagine that 'programming to technological singularity' could be right. I would use 'for'.

That said, I don't know what the phrase means.

Hi,

It's a title of a tutorial part about lambda programming. It'll explain how to program an artificial intelligence.

The sentence could be "Programming to reach technological singularity". Without the verb, i think it can be "programming for the singularity".

I don't understand what's the difference between to and for in this sentence "Programming to/for singularity".

Is "to" unappropriate?

Thanks.
