Famous technologist and futurist Ray Kurzweil states: it's going down by 2029, so be prepared to get digital on entirely new levels. According to Kurzweil, machines will have both the hardware and the software to achieve human level artificial intelligence by then. Kurzweil doesn't expect Arnold style robots to be hanging around but thinks of it on the nano scale, with interfaces to enhance our own physiology and intelligence.

The basic assumption that Kurzweil is making is that technology develops exponentcially.
Without this premise nearly everything he says doesn't seem realistic, but if he is right, we can be happy about very cool decades we will experience.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
