Here's What Futurist Ray Kurzweil Thinks Life Will Be Like In The Next 20 Years

•, Megan Rose Dickey

Kurzweil, cofounder of Singularity University, became famous for creating the first text-to-speech software. Forbescalled him "the ultimate thinking machine."

With technology advancing at increasingly rapid rate, and researchers making serious headway into discovering the mysteries of the brain, it seems as if we'll all be reconstituted as a computer someday.

Here's a summary of what our future will be like, Kurzweil said in a speech at the Demo conference in Silicon Valley this past week:

Our brains will extend to the cloud, which will allow us to learn new things at any age. We will be able to selectively erase pieces of our memory. We'll be in augmented reality at all times. By 2029, machines will be able to match the intelligence of humans, and they'll be able to make us laugh and cry. Around the 2030s, tiny "nanobots" able to repair and preserve our organs will keep us healthier and smarter.
