Ray Kurzweil Joins Google

Google is not playing around; over the last few years,  it has inserted itself into (seemingly) almost every area of technology, and now futurist Ray Kurzweil is joining their ranks as Chief Engineer. Ray who? He is the author and thinker who brought us the intriguing/scary concept of a technological singularity - a future where human and computers may literally merge and become a new type of being. I don't think Google is quite ready to unleash that upon us,  but Kurzweil has also worked in the area of how the human brain does what it does, and how language is processed - so Google definitely may want to pick his brain on those topics.
