Here's a recent 6-minute video featuring futurist and inventor-par-excellence Ray Kurzweil, who, by the way, will head up the new Google University.
Kurzweil has numerous inventions to his name and a reputation for sold futuristic predictions, and what he explains in this video is, to me, simply mind-blowing. He sees 2045 as the year of the Singularity, when machine intelligence will be capable of merging with the human brain. Then there are the strides in nanotechnology that’ll let you send your friend a toaster … via email.
So, I invite you to spend 6 minutes and be astounded ~ for better or for worse ~ at the near-term possibilities of people and technology.
