From Tia Ghose in LiveScience:
In his book “The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology“, futurist Ray Kurzweil predicted that computers will be as smart as humans by 2029, and that by 2045, “computers will be billions of times more powerful than unaided human intelligence.”
Will AI (artificial intelligence) rule mankind? Earnest Davis, NYU:
