    Kurzweil: Humans will be hybrids by 2030

    In the future, humans are going to be artificially intelligent.

    That's the prediction of Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google (GOOGL, Tech30), who spoke Wednesday at the Exponential Finance conference in New York.

    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.

    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.

    We'll also be able to fully back up our brains.

    :eek:

    Kurzweil also thought that we'd have self-driving cars by 2009

    It's gonna be a tough sell to get people to agree to have nanobots placed into their brain.

    Of course none of this will happen once a terrorist sets of a nuke in one or more of our cities, halting all progress.
