Former Google engineer: People will be „immortal“ in 8 years

Futurist Ray Kurzweil, a former Google engineer, predicted that humans would reach „immortality“ within eight years. Kurzweil said that advances in nanotechnology and robotics will lead to „nanobots“ that reverse aging. Kurzweil stated that these minit robots will repair damaged cells and tissues that deteriorate as the body ages, and suggested that they will make people immune to diseases such as cancer.

US engineer Ray Kurzweil, who came to the fore with his accurate predictions about the future, was hired by Google in 2012 to ‚work on new projects involving machine learning and language processing‘, but he was making predictions about technological developments much earlier.
Kurzweil predicted in 1990 that the world’s best chess player would be defeated by a computer by 2000, and this came true in 1997 when Deep Blue defeated Gary Kasparov.
In 1999, Kurzweil said that by 2023, a thousand-dollar laptop will have the computing power and storage capacity of a human brain, and this prediction has already come true.
Now, a former Google engineer believes the technology will become so powerful that he has suggested that this state of affairs called „singularity“ will help people live forever. “Singularity” is expressed as a concept describing a theoretical point where artificial intelligence exceeds human intelligence.
Author Kurzweil, who describes himself as a futurist, said that he predicts that the technological singularity will occur by 2045 and that artificial intelligence will pass a valid Turing test by 2029. The Turing test is a test that measures the ability of a machine to exhibit behaviors that are equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, a human’s.
Noting that machines already make people smarter and connecting them to the human brain will help people think smarter, Kurweil said, “Contrary to the fears of some, putting computers in our brains will improve us. We’ll have more neocortex, we’ll be funnier, we’ll be better at music. We will be more attractive. We will truly experience all that we value in people on a greater scale.” he said.
Kurzweil also said that nanomachines could be implanted in the human body, bringing them to „immortality.“
„Ultimately, this will affect everything,“ Kurzweil said. We will be able to meet the physical needs of all people. This process began centuries ago with simple devices such as glasses and ear trumpets that could significantly improve human life. Then came life-saving devices such as pacemakers and dialysis machines.
By the second decade of the 21st century, we’ve had organs grown in laboratories. In the next eight years we will see nanobots that reverse aging. Nanobots will repair damaged cells and tissues that deteriorate as the body ages. In this way, people will be protected against deadly diseases such as cancer,“ he said.

Artificial intelligence has reinterpreted this news for you.

Former Google engineer and futurist Ray Kurzweil has predicted that humans will achieve „immortality“ within the next eight years thanks to advancements in nanotechnology and robotics. He envisages „nanobots“ capable of reversing ageing and repairing damaged cells and tissues to make people immune to diseases such as cancer. Kurzweil also forecasts that artificial intelligence will exceed human intelligence by 2045, with machines already helping to make people smarter. He adds that „putting computers in our brains will improve us…we’ll be funnier, we’ll be better at music. We will be more attractive“.
