If it’s always been your dream to have the ability to live forever, you may be in luck as scientists believe we are just seven years away from achieving immortality.
Futurist and computer scientist Ray Kurzweil has made predictions on when the human race will be able to live forever and when artificial intelligence (AI) will reach the singularity, and he believes it could be possible as early as 2030.
The future expert has previously made accurate predictions about the advancements in technology that have come to pass. In the year 1990, he predicted that by 2000, a computer would be able to beat the world’s best human chess player. He also foresaw handheld devices becoming a big part of our lives.
In terms of AI tech reaching the human level of intelligence, Kurzweil believes 2029 will be the year, followed by immortality in 2030.
