Human Brains to Connect to the Internet by 2030

Ray Kurzweil, American author, computer scientist, inventor and futurist at Google, has recently proposed a theory about enhancing human brain using tiny robotic implants. These implants can connect the brain to cloud-based computer networks to give humans extra-ordinary abilities, such as “machine learning”.

Kurzweil has predicted that by the 2030s, humans will be using nanobots capable of tapping into their neocortex and connecting them directly to the internet. This will allow them to send messages and photos directly to each other's brains and also back up their thoughts and memories.

The concept of inserting nanomachines into the human brain has been present in science fiction for decades.

Sociology professor, Steve Fuller, believes that we are moving away from seeing ourselves as normal humans, as we increasingly embrace technological and medical advances. He has come up with the name “Human 2.0”;which represents human’s integration with web and social media in the future.
