Ray Kurzweil, an engineer at Google has predicted that humans and computer will become hybrids by around 2030, the year Kenya plans to achieve all the pillars of vision 2030 in place. That means our brains will be able to connect directly to the cloud where there will be thousands of computers and those computers will increase our existing intelligence. He said the brain will connect via nanobots — tiny robots made from DNA strands CNN reported.
“Our thinking then will be a hybrid of biological and non-biological thinking,” he said. The bigger and more complex the cloud, the more advanced our thinking. By the time we get to the late 2030s or the early 2040s, Kurzweil believes our thinking will be predominately non-biological. the unbelievable part is that humans will be able tofully back up their brains. he further added that we are going to gradually merge and enhance ourselves hence that’s the nature of being human — we transcend our limitations.”
Kurzweil, who is known as one the world’s leading inventors, has predicted what the future will look like before. In the ’90s, he made 147 predictions for 2009. In 2010, he reviewed his predictions, 86% of which were correct. He gave himself a “B” grade. His correct predictions included that people would primarily use portable computers in 2009, that cables would disappear and that computers will be built into eyeglasses. He did admit on stage Wednesday that he thought we’d have self-driving cars by 2009. “Now that’s not completely wrong,” he said. “If I had said 2015, I think it would’ve been correct, but they’re still not in mainstream use. So even the predictions that were wrong were directionally correct.”

For those concerned with artificial intelligence taking over the world, Kurzweil said we have a moral imperative to keep developing the technology while controlling for potential dangers.
“As I wrote starting 20 years ago, technology is a double-edged sword,” he said. “Fire kept us warm and cooked our food but also burnt down our houses. Every technology has had its promise and peril.”
A number of predictions have been made concerning technology today and the future, scientists are currently working on projects to make the world a better place or what an old man would say creating shortcuts due to being lazy. Joon Yun and Google and other scientists are involved in projects that will lead to Artificial Intelligence. Joon Yun and Google for instance have funded projects to research on medication that would eradicate aging.
