Humans May Romance With Computers By 2029

Think of a situation where humans would be flirting with computers and even falling in love with them. A futurist has predicted that man would develop a relationship with intelligent computers within the next 15 years.

Google’s engineering director, Ray Kurzweil has claimed that technology will be capable of emotional interaction and will have the ability to tell a joke, to be funny, to be romantic, to be loving, and that is the cutting edge of human intelligence.

Mr Kurzweil who is credited with inventing the world’s first flat-bed scanners and text-to-speech, is perhaps most famous for his theory of “the singularity” – a point in the future where humans and machines will converge.

He has previously warned that computers will outsmart us by 2029, using the example of voice recognition software and Google’s self-driving cars to demonstrate the rapid advance of technology.

The 66-year-old is one of the world’s leading futurologists and has previously made strikingly accurate predictions.

He has also predicted at the Exponential Finance conference was the prospect of “programming” genes to overcome cancer, diseases and even the ageing process. Mr Kurzweil has already come true. In 1990 he said a computer would be capable of beating a chess champion by 1998 – a feat managed by IBM’s Deep Blue, against Garry Kasparov, in 1997.
