Kurzweil says exponential growth itself is growing exponentially and applies to a wide range of technologies, from electronic to biological.

He estimates a cubic inch of nanotube circuitry would be up to 100 million times more powerful than the human brain.

Kurzweil says there are no simple language tricks that would enable a computer to pass a well designed Turing test. A computer would need to actually master human levels of understanding to pass.

He predicts over the next two decades we will augment our 100 trillion very slow interneuronal connections with high speed virtual connections via nano robotics. […]
