Humans Will Have Cloud-Connected Hybrid Brains by 2030, Ray Kurzweil Says

Hybrid-Brains-by-2030

So, you think you’ve seen it all? You haven’t seen anything yet. By the year 2030, advancements will excel anything we’ve seen before concerning human intelligence. In fact, predictions offer glimpses of something truly amazing – the development of a human hybrid, a mind that thinks in artificial intelligence.

Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google, spoke openly about this idea at the Exponential Finance Conference in New York. He predicts that humans will have hybrid brains able to connect to the cloud, just as with computers. In this cloud, there will be thousands of computers which will update human intelligence. The larger the cloud, the more complicated the thinking. This will all be connected using DNA strands called Nanobots. Sounds like a Sci-Fi movie, doesn’t it?

Brain mind

Kurzweil says:

“Our hybrid thinking will be a combination of biological and non-biological thought processes.”

By the end of 2030, our thinking should be almost entirely non-biological and able to function much like an external hard drive – having the ability to backup information as with technology. It seems we keep pushing further the ability of the human mind.

Kurzweil believes one of the true characteristics of the being human is the ability to continually surpass knowledge.

“We will always transcend our limitations-it’s human nature.” says Kurzweil.

Kurzweil wasn’t 100% accurate in his future predictions, but he was close enough. In 1990, he predicted several things for the year 2009, including portable computers and eyeglasses with the built-in computer screen. He didn’t, however, hit the nail on the head with self-driven cars. It was much later, this year, to be exact, that the idea touched the edge of mainstream technology. He was 86% accurate in his predictions, which is astonishing in itself.

Technological Takeover

No worries, there will probably not be a massive takeover by artificial intelligence. We have accounted for this long ago in other theories. For instance, fire provides a way to cook, but we have managed somehow to keep from burning everything down. The same rules apply here. We have taken the necessary precautions to safeguard ourselves from these horrors.

However, we must still play it safe. Kurzweil reminds us:

“Technology is a double-edged sword. It has its promise and its peril.”

  1. When I look at the development of AI software to trick the mind while sleeping so that during waking life reactions to situation are manipulated to make the chipped slave behave obediently… what google predicts is already secretly here… already reality.

    The language translator brain chip has been up for sale publicly since 2011. What the yuppie doesn’t know is the nano chip is designed for mind-control, not language translation. Translating languages is a tiny capability of the brain-chip.

    My present dreaming video experiments conducted by central command while sleeping is to manipulate my thinking within dreams so that it applies to my behaviour during wakefulness. These experiments are conducted through all those micro-wave towers forming the control-grid. This is what central command desires to develop because soon the volunteers getting brain-chips to enhance their minds will be covertly mind controlled through their dreams… at least, this is what the techno-feudalists desire.
