Ray Kurzweil: Humans will be hybrids by 2030

In the future, humans are going to be artificially intelligent.

That's the prediction of Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google (GOOGL, Tech30), who spoke Wednesday at the Exponential Finance conference in New York.

Kurzweil predicts that humans will become hybrids in the 2030s. That means our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud, where there will be thousands of computers, and those computers will augment our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots -- tiny robots made from DNA strands.

"Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking," he said.

The bigger and more complex the cloud, the more advanced our thinking. By the time we get to the late 2030s or the early 2040s, Kurzweil believes our thinking will be predominately non-biological.

The government would love to have access to this. Just upload everyone's brain and then they can have automatic updates to keep them informed about anything new we might have learned or any dissent.  If they ever get hold of a database like this, humanity is finished.

Like Kurzweil says, fire cooks our food but it also burns down our houses.

Sinister stuff. Fingers crossed it goes the way of most other futuristic predictions. Although if it could help me speak better French...

How can anyone think this is anything other than pure evil? 

​I don't know, but the people working on it don't seem to have a problem with it. Anything for a large paycheck?
