Ray Kurzweil’s prediction rate has been rated 86 per cent accurate to date
Ray Kurzweil is director of engineering at Google but he is better known for writing best-selling books outlining the future of artificial intelligence.
He has made 147 predictions on the future of technology including the ubiquity of wearable devices and the move from desktops and laptops to smartphones and tablets. In fact, his prediction rate has been rated 86 per cent accurate.
With this in mind, fans were excited to see Kurzweil answer their questions in a live streaming interview session last week where he elaborated on his predictions.
Kurzweil thinks true AI will arrive when narrow fields within machine learning, computer vision and so on get broader and broader until there “won’t really be any difference between AI and natural [human] intelligence”.
“It is not an alien invasion of AI from Mars; we’re going to make ourselves smarter by merging with it,” he added. This merging will happen using nanobots, he predicts.
“In the 2030s we are going to send nanorobots into the brain that will provide full immersion virtual reality from within the nervous system and will connect our neocortex to the cloud. Just like how we can wirelessly expand the power of our smartphones 10,000-fold in the cloud today, we’ll be able to expand our neocortex.”

When students return to school in New Albany, Ohio, in August, they’ll be carefully watched as they wander through red-brick buildings and across well-kept lawns—and not only by teachers.
The school district, with five schools and 4,800 students, plans to test a system that would require each student to wear an electronic beacon to track their location to within a few feet. The technology logs which students and teachers are in each classroom throughout the day. The hope is such technology could prevent or minimize an outbreak of Covid-19, the deadly respiratory disease at the center of a global pandemic.
When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.
“The illusion of freedom will continue for as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will take down the scenery, move the tables and chairs out of the way, then they will pull back the curtains and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

RE: Lloyd’s of London excludes coverage for claims caused by exposure to non-ionizing radiation.
“Based on inaccurate information provided by ITRON, Health Canada and Dr. Perry Kendall, you have been telling people that there is no health risk due to prolonged exposure to radiation from smart meters on homes and wifi in school — this despite your having received 100s of studies by independent researchers and many letters from scientists and doctors to the contrary…
“Lloyd’s of London is one of the largest insurers in the world and often leads the way in protection, taking on risks that no one else will. Attached is a recent renewal policy which, as of Feb. 7, 2015, excludes any coverage associated with exposure to non-ionizing radiation….”
“‘The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.”….
“This means that the Province (that is we, the taxpayer) will be held liable for claims from teachers and parents of children suffering biological effects from wifi in schools, from homeowners exposed to RF from mandated smart meters on homes, and from employees forced to use cell phones or exposed to wifi at work…”
The fact that Lloyd’s will not insure you the user against the harmful effects of these devices speaks volumes. We already had the evidence but as I continually reiterate here, industry does not want you to know … that knowledge would clearly dissuade you from using their devices. The recent post here on the unfortunate UK man enduring the forced installation of a smart meter in his home (he’s now opted for no power in preference) is disconcerting to say the least. Where has our right of choice as free citizens gone? Are we not purchasing power? Do we have no choice about how this is delivered?
If you’re new to the smart meter issue please educate yourself. Arm yourself with the correct information. Unfortunately you will not get this from your powerco. Listen to the professionals, watch the documentaries particularly ‘Take Back Your Power’. Then make informed decisions about how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
