The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
Are you ready to connect your brain to the cloud?
In 15 years or so, futurists predict, your neocortex (which is the most developed of the cerebral tissues) could be connected directly to the global computing cloud.
Human intelligence augmentation is at our doorstep, whether we are for it or not!
This is what Ray Kurzweil, a pundit, says:
“Today, the Internet-connected smartphone already boosts its memory a 10,000-fold. In the 2030s, we are going to send nano-robots into the brain (via capillaries). These will connect our neocortex directly to the Internet; our brain power will be hugely extended.”
If you are dubitative, please note that over the last 20 years or so, Kurzweil’s predictions have turned out to be correct a stunning 86% of the time.

Smart lens technology for diabetes patients (and how Google and Novartis make each other even wealthier).
In January 2014, Google revealed that it has been working on a secret project.
And a few months later it was announced that the Alcon eye care unit of Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis will license the smart lens technology from the Google[x] research division.
“The key goal behind the smart lens technology is to help people with diabetes. Currently, diabetes patients must prick their skin throughout the day to check their blood glucose levels, a task that can be time-consuming and painful.
Google proposes a less invasive solution with its smart lens technology. This solution (still in development) would continuously track glucose levels by measuring the tear fluid in the eye. Those readings would then be sent wirelessly to the user via a mobile device.

Worrying is unuseful thinking about the future.
For many of us, rapid technological development is unsettling. Combined with current global news of war and migration which drip into our psyche daily, we tend to get overwhelmed.
If you go through a spout of anxiousness, check out Eckart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now”
It explains beautifully why worrying about the past and the future is a soul destroying affair.
