Singularity is when carbon and silicon-based intelligence will merge to form a single global consciousness. 'By 2029, computers will have human-level intelligence,' Kurzweil said in the interview with SXSW.

Super humans who are sexier, stronger and smarter will arrive by 2029 as brains begin to fuse with machines, Google expert claims
- Ray Kurzweil has made 147 predictions since 1990 and is correct 86% of the time
- By 2029 our brains fuse with machines - an event known as singularity
- He says machines will exemplify what we value in humans to a greater degree
- Machines are already making us smarter and will move inside our brains soon
Technological singularity will turn us into super humans some time in the next 12 years, according to a Google expert.
This might sound like science fiction, but Google's Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil, has made 147 predictions since the 1990s and has a success rate of 86 per cent.
Kurzweil says when we live in a cybernetic society we will have computers in our brains and machines will be smarter than human beings.
He claims this is already happening with technology - especially with our addiction to our phones - and says the next step is to wire this technology into our brains.
Technological singularity will turn us into super humans some time in the next 12 years, according to a Google expert. Ray Kurzweil says future cyborg generations will be sexier, smarter and stronger
Kurzweil, an author who describes himself as a futurist and works on Google's machine learning project, predicted that technological singularity would happen by 2029 at the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas.
Singularity is when carbon and silicon-based intelligence will merge to form a single global consciousness.
'By 2029, computers will have human-level intelligence,' Kurzweil said in the interview with SXSW.
'That leads to computers having human intelligence, our putting them inside our brains, connecting them to the cloud, expanding who we are.
'Today, that's not just a future scenario,' Kurzweil said. 'It's here, in part, and it's going to accelerate', he said.
Kurzweil said that machines are already making us smarter and by connecting these machines to our neocortex they will help people think more smartly.
However, Kurzweil said he wasn't concerned about the threat that intelligent robots might pose to humanity, according to Futurism.com.
