Editor’s Note: That long title wasn’t my idea. Can someone remind me who asked futurist Ray Kurzweil over there at Google to upload my mind to a computer and replace my body with a robot? I don’t remember ever saying that is something I would ever want, ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s horrifying and all kinds of messed up.

In just over 30 years, humans will be able to upload their entire minds to computers and become digitally immortal – an event called singularity – according to a futurist from Google.
Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google, also claims that the biological parts of our body will be replaced with mechanical parts and this could happen as early as 2100.
Kurweil made the claims during his conference speech at the Global Futures 2045 International Congress in New York at the weekend.
