[3/19/17] Google’s Director of Engineer Ray Kurzweil believes that we are little more than a decade away from taking major steps towards immortality.The tech specialist, who has long supported the notion of immortality, says that medical advancements and improved technology in the coming 12 years will see humans being given the option to live forever.
Mr Kurzweil said: “I believe we will reach a point around 2029 when medical technologies will add one additional year every year to your life expectancy.
“By that I don’t mean life expectancy based on your birthdate, but rather your remaining life expectancy.”
By 2045, the 69-year old says, humans will be able to live forever.
He continued: “The nonbiological intelligence created in that year will reach a level that’s a billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today.”
