Ray Kurzweil turns into a Googler, named Director of Engineering
Come December seventeenth, futurist extraordinaire Ray Kurzweil will probably be becoming a member of Google’s ranks as Director of Engineering to work on tasks that contain machine studying and language processing. Specifics relating to these tasks, nevertheless, have not but surfaced. The technologist took the announcement to pat himself on the again about predicting the arrival of self-driving automobiles and smartphones that may reply questions greater than a decade in the past, and says he is “thrilled to be teaming up with Google to work on a few of the hardest issues in pc science so we will flip the subsequent decade’s ‘unrealistic’ visions into actuality.” If issues pan out how the Google greenhorn predicts, we’d simply see computer systems as artful as Homo sapiens by 2029.
