“Kurzweil’s eclectic career and propensity for combining science with practical — often humanitarian — applications have inspired comparisons with Thomas Edison.” — Time
In the future, humans are going to be artificially intelligent.
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.
Why a supermarket might be building the world’s most exciting robot
The robot will be completely autonomous and should be able to help with everything from fetching tools to holding objects and even assisting with cleaning and engineering tasks. The project is a collaboration between the technology arm of the online supermarket and four universities across the European Union. The robotics team at Ocado Technology believe it could become “the most advanced assistive robot in the world“
