From a search engine that processes a few hundred million hits a day, Google is transforming into an infinite and Omniscient (all-knowing) entity.

While meddling with the extraordinary:
  • Google Brain (AI system)
  • Singularity University
  • Google Car (driverless)

Google has taken on the un-thinkable task - solving death.



Is there anything Google cannot (or wont) do?

Is Google God?

LOL I just posted this in the singularity thread..........

I am not sure if Google will be successful in this area, that would be speculation, but they certainly have a good chance. That being said there are so many people and organizations working on this and since it is based on information technology advancing exponentially from what I read we will start to see life spans go up dramatically in about 10 years, by 2023. Then by the late 2020's computers the size of blood cells will have more processing capability then all of NASA in the 1960's and we will have millions if not billions inside us augmenting our immune system and cognitive ability among other things we don't know yet. All in all the next 17 years, now to 2030, will be fun and interesting and at the same time a little nerve racking as so many things will be changing and so fast.

What is wrong with Mankind wanting achieve great things?

Does it affront your religious views?

Or are you just anti-technology?

All this is close ... yet so far. Google getting into this business is definitely a good thing. They have the money and the resources to do this better than many others ...

I agree 100% that its a great thing that Google is getting involved.

I do not think it is a long way off though. All this, and more, will happen by 2030, only 17 years away.

This just proves that we have more information available to us instantly then people who did research for weeks at a time in the 1990's.
