So let me just end with a couple of scenarios By 2010 computers will disappear they'll be so small, they'll be embedded in our clothing, in our environment images will be written directly to our retina providing full-immersion virtual reality augmented real reality We'll be interacting with virtual personalities But if we go to 2029 we really have the full maturity of these trends and you have to appreciate how many turns of the screw in terms of generations of technology which are getting faster and faster we'll have at that point we will have two to the 25th power greater price performance, capacity and bandwith of these technologies which is pretty phenomenal It'll be millions of times more powerful than it is today We'll have completed the reverse engineering of the human brain one thousand dollars of computing will be more powerful than the human brain in terms of basic raw capacity computers will combine the subtle pan-recognition powers of human intelligence with ways in which machines are already superior in terms of doing analytic thinking remembering billions of facts accurately machines can share their knowledge very quickly But it's not just an alien invasion of intelligent machines we are going to merge with our technology The nano-bots I mentioned will first be used for medical and health applications cleaning up the environment, providing fuel- powerful fuel cells and widely distributed decentralized solar panels, and so on in the environment But they'll also go inside our brain interact with our biological neurons We've demostrated the key principles of being able to do this. So, for example full virtual reality from within the nervous system the nano-bots shut down the signals coming from your real senses replaces them with the signals that your brain would be receiving if you were in the virtual environment And then it'll feel like your in that virtual environment you can go there with other people, have any kind of experience with anyone involving all of the senses "Experience beamers", I call them, will put their whole flow of sensory experiences and the neurological correlates of their emotions out on the internet You can plug in and experience what it's like to be someone else But most importantly, it'll be a tremendous expansion of human intelligence through this direct merger with our technology.
