SYNOPSIS: Technology evolves exponentially; the rate of technical progress itself is accelerating, so expect to see 20,000 years of progress in the 21st century, about 1000 times greater than the 20th century
Say goodbye to cancer and heart disease within 15 years, and hello to living way past 80. And try to survive until the year 2029, which according to Kurzweils mathematical models, represents 25 turns of the screw in terms of doubling the power of information technology in every aspect of our lives. We will see reverse engineering of the human brain, and computers that will combine the subtlety and pattern recognition of human intelligence with the speed, memory and knowledge sharing of machine intelligence. The marriage of nanotechnology and AI will bring us a killer app– nanobots that can keep us healthy from the inside. These will also enable full immersion virtual reality from within nervous systems and expand human intelligence, facilitating brain to brain communication.
