I haven't seen this mentioned on here so I'm gonna bring it up. Some of you may know that futurist Ray Kurzweil was appointed as Google's head of engineering a few months back. If you know anything about Kurzweil, you'll know he has big ideas. One of them happens to be building a human-level artificial intelligence. He plans to do this, as far as I know, while working for Google. He wants to use the massive amount of resources that the search engine has to build this thing. What this entails is no more basing searches on keywords and links. It'll all be based on understanding language in the way that humans do. I don't know how possible this is, but it's interesting to think about (to me anyway). I put it to you BlackHatWorld: do you think Kurzweil's ever gonna build this super-intelligent AI to serve as Google's new search engine algorithm? If not that, maybe one that's as intelligent as Jeopardy's WATSON? What does this entail for how we do SEO? I can't post links to two of the videos where Kurzweil talks about his job at Google, but they're on the youtube channel SingularityHub. If someone else (who can) wants to post them here, please do.
