Computer robots will outsmart humans within 15 years

Computer robots will outsmart humans within 15 years | Singularity | Scoop.it
Ray Kurzweil, 66, (pictured) the director of engineering at Google, has predicted that by 2029 machines will be able to crack jokes, tell stories, and even flirt.
GeorgeGrant's insight:

2029 - It's really not that far away. Be sure to watch the video on the LS3 robot.. It's really amazing. 


Info technology continues to progress exponentially, and moves through complete paradigm shifts to keep progressing. The pace of change is accelerating, so what if Ray is wrong and it takes less than 15 years?

FutureCast's curator insight, August 30, 2013 10:10 PM

"

"The Singularity is defined as the point in time when computer intelligence exceeds human intelligence. This notion of superhuman machines has long served as fodder for tales of science fiction. Yet most scientific leaders argue that these changes are inevitable, based on the accelerating rate of technological progress.

While we cannot be certain of what our future brings, it is nonetheless import...ant to understand the great strides being made in fields such as nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and molecular biology, and how these technologies will radically alter the way we live. Inevitably, the question arises: what kind of humans do we want to become?

Director Doug Wolens speaks with leading futurists, computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, and philosophers who turn over the question like a Rubik’s Cube. Those who insist this paradigm shift is only decades away emphasize that we’re on the cusp of creating nanotech machines that patrol our bloodstream and repair cellular damage, athletes with jacked-up genetic code who sprint like gazelles, an Internet that downloads directly to the mind, and medical labs with computer-replicated brains working by the thousands to cure disease.

Ultimately, if we become more machine-like, and machines more like us, will we sacrifice our humanity to gain something greater? Or will we engineer our own demise? Even if the answers are impossible to know, THE SINGULARITY makes clear that we cannot postpone addressing the questions."
