That person got some things wrong. First 2045 was what some people think for a so called singularity. 2nd the D-wave is not a universal quantum computer to start. It can not do a few things like shor's algorithm. Quantum computers will not solve everything. If he wants to go multiple universes. Then realize that one if not many have already been hacked. He basically butchered quantum computing in a few ways. The man merging with A.I. has already happened in a crud way with prosthetics and BCI/BMI. Beyond that the A.I. some of the singularity people talk about. In the upper circles they talk about 300 or so people imprinted to make a S.A.I. ( super artificial intelligence ). The number of 300 came from them and basically says the richest might get that. Though the A.I. would be more a imprint of them and most likely lack some things a true S.A.I. might be able to do not based off humans. Nano bots brings a whole slew of problems. From hacking to side effects to government or cooperate intrusion and controls of a type. Think DMCA and seeing some thing they do not want you to have a copy of in your brain file/memory. Or RIAA and a song you heard and didn't pay for. They can scan for it and erase it or fine and throw people in jail. That's just the tip of it all also as examples. Would you want google or apple or Micro soft owning your nanobots in your brain with planed obsolescents or control over functions you do not get to use? I could go on, but you should be able to get the general drift. He really seemed to butcher the technology.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution Is Here: What Now? [Video]

The Fourth Industrial Revolution Is Here: What Now? [Video] | Futurewaves | Scoop.it
What if the world we knew was subtly being replaced with a new one? Would we notice immediately, or would it only be evident in hindsight?

According to the World Economic Forum, the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” is here. It’s a change as significant as any modern revolution before it. And if we look, we’ll see the signs.

If the first three industrial revolutions brought us the steam engine, electricity, and global communication, the fourth revolution merges the digital, physical and biological. As Ray Kurzweil often says, this trajectory will eventually eliminate the barriers between man and machine. 

"One of the features of this fourth industrial revolution is that it doesn't change what we are doing, but it changes us," says Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum.

The World Depends on Technology No One Understands

The World Depends on Technology No One Understands | Futurewaves | Scoop.it
“We are in a new era, one in which we are building systems that can’t be grasped in their totality or held in the mind of a single person.” – Samuel Arbesman

As a teenage nobody, George Hotz earned notoriety for being the first hacker to unlock Apple’s iPhone — much to the annoyance of AT&T, who had exclusive-ish networking rights at the time. Several years later, he became the focus of a Sony lawsuit for releasing hacked Playstation 3 software to the world. And last December, he discussed his latest project with Bloomberg’s Ashlee Vance — a patched together home-made driverless car.

When asked what compels him to crack open these complicated technologies Hotz said, “I want power. Not power over people, but power over nature and the destiny of technology. I just want to know how it all works [emphasis added].”

Intelligent Robots Will Overtake Humans by 2100, Experts Say

Intelligent Robots Will Overtake Humans by 2100, Experts Say | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Some believe in a utopian future, in which humans can transcend their physical limitations with the aid of machines. But others think humans will eventually relinquish most of their abilities and gradually become absorbed into artificial intelligence (AI)-based organisms, much like the energy making machinery in our own cells.
