Machines will achieve human-level artificial intelligence by 2029, a leading US inventor has predicted.

Humanity is on the brink of advances that will see tiny robots implanted in people’s brains to make them more intelligent, said Ray Kurzweil.

The engineer believes machines and humans will eventually merge through devices implanted in the body to boost intelligence and health.

“It’s really part of our civilisation,” Mr Kurzweil explained.

But that’s not going to be an alien invasion of intelligent machines to displace us.”

Machines were already doing hundreds of things humans used to do, at human levels of intelligence or better, in many different areas, he said.

I’ve made the case that we will have both the hardware and the software to achieve human level artificial intelligence with the broad suppleness of human intelligence including our emotional intelligence by 2029,” he said.

Some people might think I´m crazy for saying this but if Mr. Kurzweil´s predictions come true I´ll be a happy man.

I think that the next step in human evolution is a merge between man and machine, we need to do that to unleash our full potential, to travle to other stars and to colonize other planets.

If you haven´t read Mr. Kurzweil´s predictions I think you should, you can find them on his wiki page.
