    Computer scientist and futurist Ray Kurzweil just revealed the project he is working on at Google: A chatbox designed to simulate a character from one of his unpublished novels, and the hope is to make it capable of human-level speech.
    Kurzweil, other than being a name in technology, is also popular for his predictions. These focus on how science and technology will progress and change the world. He is a “prophet” of the Singularity, which deals with the time when artificial intelligence will surpass humans in ability and intellectual capacity.
    Of 147 predictions since the 90’s, he has a 86% accuracy rate.
    He believes his chatbots will allow for interesting conversation, but he asserts that we’ll have to wait until 2029 for them to have human-level language abilities. He claims that, at that point, artificial intelligence will be able to pass the Turing test, meaning they will be indistinguishable from a real person in a blind test.
