Maybe they can free us of religion

Machines 'to match man by 2029'

Machines will achieve human-level artificial intelligence by 2029, a leading US inventor has predicted.

Humanity is on the brink of advances that will see tiny robots implanted in people's brains to make them more intelligent, said Ray Kurzweil.

The engineer believes machines and humans will eventually merge through devices implanted in the body to boost intelligence and health.

"It's really part of our civilisation," Mr Kurzweil explained.

"But that's not going to be an alien invasion of intelligent machines to displace us."

Machines were already doing hundreds of things humans used to do, at human levels of intelligence or better, in many different areas, he said.

Obligatory commentary (snicker) :

Maybe if they make us smarter, they can cure the human race of the delusion that is religion. And we can advance as a species.

Really? I heard the timeline was 2050 for ones that good. THey must have increased the acceleration for chip speed increases.
