Writeup: Ray Kurzweil, in his new book titled, ?The Singularity is Near?, predicts:

?As we enter the 2030s there won?t be clear distinctions between human and machine, between real and virtual reality, or between work and play.?

?By the 2030s the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate, and by the 2040s ?the nonbiological portion will be billions of times more capable. Although we are likely to retain the biological portion for a period of time, it will become of increasingly little consequence. So we will have effectively uploaded ourselves, albeit gradually, never quite noticing the transfer. There will be no ?old Ray? and ?new Ray,? just an increasingly capable Ray.?

?? I set the date for the Singularity ? representing a profound and disruptive transformation in human capability ? as 2045.?

?There will be no distinction, post-Singularity, between human and machine or between physical and virtual reality.?

Join as as we discuss how we will be affected, as individuals and as a world society, by the developments predicted, in this follow up to the discussion titled "The Singularity Is Near", held on Wednesday, August 26, 2009.
