I brought the "AI" into the

I brought the "AI" into the discussion because the day of intelligent, self-aware, thinking computers is not far off, if you buy into the arguments of Ray Kurzweil (and he's managed to be quite accurate with his predictions thus far). There will soon be a day when a single computer has the processing equivalence and intelligence of a single human being (about 2019-2020), then it will only be a short matter of time before a single desktop computer has the computing power of ALL human brains (the year 2045). Surely things will be radically different by that time and people may have brain implants that improve our memory, ability to think and make connections and other things we cannot possibly imagine at this time.
