Which of Kurzweil`s predictions do you agree with?
I believe that several of Kurzweil`s predictions for 2020, have already come to pass. Kurzweil discusses about how computers get smaller and that soon laptops and desktops will not exist there are already smaller laptops. We have mobil phones that are doing the same things that are computers are doing We have computers in our cars that can tell us where to go if we get lost, microwaves,coffeepots,digital refrigerators,toys etc.that all are operated by small computers.I believe that his prediction for computers being imbedded in our clothing will also come to pass.I do not think this type of computer technology will be for everyone and it sounds more like a tracking device and an invasion of privacy.I do agree also with the medical technologies that will come in the future I have hope that in the future there will be a cure for cancer,diabetes,aids,and other diseases
Which of Kurzweil`s predictions do I doubt?
I doubt that everyone will be using these technologies I know several people that have never owned a desktop or laptop. How will people afford these computers?I
Are you thrilled or worried about the singularity and exponential technology advances?
I believe there will be several advancements in the future of technology especially medically,however I do not believe some of his predictions.If I did I would be concerned about nanobots, the scanning of the human brain,humans allowing computers to be imbedded in their brain.I cannot say I am thrilled or worried if there was more supporting evidence that this was actually going to happen then I would be very worried about it.
