By 2045, human beings will become a new species, half human, half machine.
Or so futurist Ray Kurzweil believes. He argues that by looking at the how tech is being developed that one day we will sort of merge with machines and society will reach a state of “technological singularity.”
That’s because, in part, computer processors double in speed every year while they get increasingly smaller. One day, we’ll inject tiny computers into our bodies like medicine or add them to our brains to make us smarter.
In the meantime, tech is always getting faster, cheaper, and spreading to more markets and industries. And this creates a lot of opportunity for startups, until the day when we all turn into cyborgs.
