Episode 12: The Apotheosis of Google

Apotheosis of Google

Apotheosis of Google

Really the power of Google is starting to be a bit scary and awesome at the same time and with Kurzweil it is just orders of magnitude getting more powerful and when the backend servers at Google can hold a conversation in English and can’t tell its not a human, how much longer before it decides it is a deity? the birth of AGI… this could be good and horribly bad at the same time depending on how you look at it.  🙂
