Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029.
Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.

This film looks really great and is on my list of films to see next year.

Well finally. I loved the book and from what I've heard some of the puzzles will be different in the movie so those who read the book will have fun watching it.

I have a feeling it might stray far from the book. Not because I read the book, but more because that's what Hollywood usually does.
I'm not sure if they're going for Cyberpunk. If so, it seems a little ... action heavy? But then most Hollywood movies are.

I know its just a film but highly unrealistic we'll still be using goggles and haptic gloves for VR in 2045, they should have brought the date to 2025....

Unfortunately Spielberg has said he doesn't want to make a film where the majority of easter eggs are self gratifying (most are from Spielberg movies). I think there is a rumour that the only mech in the entire movie will be the Iron Giant... and it won't be voiced by Diesel....
“If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.”

The film looks incredible. I second what another poster said, by the year 2045 people won't be using vr goggles like depicted in the film, it's going to be contact lenses or something else completely.
It will most likely be Matrix-Style VR via nanobots or a powerful headset. According to the timelime, that's possible by the late 2030s. I wish the film used that instead.

@Everyone saying that VR tech needs to be visually better: it's actually explained in the book that human society is completely in decline and that the era where miniaturization like that was possible is behind us. So there's technically a reason.

This is literally my favorite book of all time; I'm so excited they're making it into a movie.
Pope Francis said that atheists are still eligible to go to heaven, to return the favor, atheists said that popes are still eligible to go into a void of nothingness.
