Google’s AI Guru Predicts Humans and Machines Will Merge within 20 Years

Ray Kurzweil, Google’s guru of AI and futurism, believes we’ll all be less biological, because humans are always evolving, and the next step of our evolution will be the internal implementation of technology. The human-robot hybrid won’t be a monstrosity of metal. It’ll just be a chip in your brain instead of an iPhone in your hand.

In the future it’ll be no more shocking to think about the weather in Hong Kong and get an answer than it is to say "Hey Google, what’s the weather in China?" and receive accurate information from a glowing rectangle with a speaker inside of it. Kursweil believes "medical robots will go inside our brain and connect our neo-cortex to the smart cloud" by the year 2029.
