World-renowned artificial intelligence expert and Google’s new Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil, wants to build a search engine so sophisticated that it could act like a ‘cybernetic friend,’ who knows users better than they know themselves.
I see exciting possibilities with Ray leading up an initiative with Google. There was much talk during our summer graduate program at Singularity University (http://singularityu.org/gsp) of creating an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).
In fact, my team project that came out of #GSP12 ultimatley would love to incorporate AGI to revolution learning. Check out http://EdDefy.com. We are still in early stages, and will update more on that project as we go. But, if you have a strong interest in changing the future of education and want to work/collaborate/invest with us, please contact the EdDefy team at firstname.lastname@example.org
