Hybrid thinking

Ray Kurzweil knows a lot about how brains work. And he has some mindblowing predictions about how technology will enable hybrid thinking in the near future.

Here's an excerpt:

"Five to 10 years from now, search engines will actually be based on not just looking for combinations of words and links but actually understanding, reading for understanding the billions of pages on the web and in books. So you'll be walking along, and Google will pop up and say, "You know, Mary, you expressed concern to me a month ago that your glutathione supplement wasn't getting past the blood-brain barrier. Well, new research just came out 13 seconds ago that shows a whole new approach to that and a new way to take glutathione. Let me summarize it for you.""
