The Something Monologues

TSM16 Part 1: Future Technologies – Brain Bots & The Light Node

In this monologue I critique Ray Kurzweil’s idea of Brain Bots which he has predicted arising in 2030 and I present an alternative idea I call The Light Node. Ray is the person who came up with the idea of the Technological Singularity, in which artificial intelligence will pass human intelligence as it becomes conscious in about 2045. I disagree with him.


I was a bit brain dead, sitting in a hot car waiting for my son, so I was a little confused when talking about 1 or 2 ideas, including the Technological Singularity. You know what it’s like when you know something but it’s just out of reach and you grab the wrong thing instead ! But I think you get where I was going with this.

I was planning on talking about a spin off idea but my son finished his errands and we had to go, so I’ll finish it next monologue.

Here’s Ray Kurzweil’s idea.
