    Machines will achieve human-level artificial intelligence by 2029, a leading US inventor has predicted.

    Humanity is on the brink of advances that will see tiny robots implanted in people's brains to make them more intelligent, said Ray Kurzweil.

    The engineer believes machines and humans will eventually merge through devices implanted in the body to boost intelligence and health.

    "It's really part of our civilisation," Mr Kurzweil explained.

    "But that's not going to be an alien invasion of intelligent machines to displace us."

    Machines were already doing hundreds of things humans used to do, at human levels of intelligence or better, in many different areas, he said.

    bollocks! If my lecture this afternoons anything to go on that wont be happening anytime soon - if ever. I'm speaking from programming a computer to think like a human point of view. We're doing pattern recognition - the effort it takes to recognise a single T (and the margin of error) for me is too great to trust a computer without any human input/quality control. but we're on the real basics atm lol

    But most of the machines are male and they do have memory and intelligence! I have some doubts. ;)
