Scientists at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology predict that computer intelligence will surpass human intelligence by year's end.

 

Researchers say the event, referred to as the Singularity in cognitive science circles, is being propelled by two dominant reasons: computers are becoming increasingly smarter, and humans are becoming increasingly dumber.

 

Makes you wonder what the next evolutionary step is.

The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology - [see full film - click here]

 

 

Ray Kurzweil, called the "restless genius" by The Wall Street Journal and "the ultimate thinking machine" by Forbes magazine, was selected as one of the top entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine, which described him as the "rightful heir to Thomas Edison." With a twenty-five year track record of accurate predictions, Kurzweil predicts that with the ever-accelerating rate of technological change, humanity is fast approaching an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly non-biological and millions of times more powerful. This will be the dawning of a new civilization enabling us to transcend our biological limitations.

 

In Kurzweil's post-biological world, boundaries blur between human and machine, real and virtual. Human aging and illness are reversed, world hunger and poverty are solved, and we cure death.

Okay it's 2011, and by 2050 then your statement WILL HOLD TRUE.

 

In 2050 it's really going to start to get kicking in the computer world.

 

I wont be around for it, but Lucky You "For real".

 

Till then? It's a joke out there as to what we can do with computers.
