Artificial Intelligence is the Next Step in Search (and everything else)

Entrepreneur Lars Hard feels he has seen the future of search, information gathering and the web in general, and it is artificial intelligence. Computational intelligence, to put it more succinctly: the ability to gather information or find your destination on the web faster and more efficiently with an artificial search partner that can predict what you want. The number of search engines, the myriad pathways from a user’s inquisitive mind to the answer he or she seeks requires that someone, or some thing, must learn the complexities of people’s search patterns in order to better serve the searcher.

“Everything on the internet will have to get more intelligent,” said Hard.

“Siri is a very good example of what we’re going to see more of in the future,” said Hard, who has set up his own company, ExpertMaker, to develop software for artificial intelligence. The company’s platform consists of a server, toolkit and API that provides its clients with technology for upgrading existing, or building new, AI products.

Hard recounts that when Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) was a young company, he and others were using Alta Vista as their search engine. Google’s offering was not hugely better, but the incremental increase in qualitative results was felt by users and they responded by using the now giant search company. AI could be that next step in the evolution of search, Hard said.

Within the next 10 years, Hard predicts, the web will shift from just serving static images and a lot of unstructured text. In search, social and other categories of information, we’re seeing an information overload which will be replaced by a more computational nature and “reasoning” that can help users sift through a massive ocean of information.

For example, inputting data in a search will be remembered, combined with any other basic information a search engine can glean about a user and build a ‘memory’ of statistics and patterns that will allow it to arrive at a likely informational destination faster. In ecommerce, Hard said, no longer will several key phrases lead a user to the same top ten listings on Google or Bing; the user will be brought to those online merchants that have the most specific product being sought. Other applications include medical diagnostics, he added.

Hard’s vision of the future starts to become really complex when you try to fathom the idea of Siri-like AI personal assistants, using a handful of other AI search engine/info-sifters, which in turn are relying another handful of AI agents. As I myself imagine it, I’m reminded of connections and communications between brain synapses and wonder how massive a global info network could get. As fast as technologies – and technologists like Hard – move forward, we’re probably still safe from dealing with actual thinkingmachines. Or are we?

/ About us

Founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011 with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems.

The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. 

The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society.

A large-scale transformation of humanity, comparable to some of the major spiritual and sci-tech revolutions in history, will require a new strategy. We believe this to be necessary to overcome existing crises, which threaten our planetary habitat and the continued existence of humanity as a species. With the 2045 Initiative, we hope to realize a new strategy for humanity's development, and in so doing, create a more productive, fulfilling, and satisfying future.

The "2045" team is working towards creating an international research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and development in the fields of anthropomorphic robotics, living systems modeling and brain and consciousness modeling with the goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier and achieving cybernetic immortality.

An annual congress "The Global Future 2045" is organized by the Initiative to give platform for discussing mankind's evolutionary strategy based on technologies of cybernetic immortality as well as the possible impact of such technologies on global society, politics and economies of the future.


Future prospects of "2045" Initiative for society


The emergence and widespread use of affordable android "avatars" controlled by a "brain-computer" interface. Coupled with related technologies “avatars’ will give people a number of new features: ability to work in dangerous environments, perform rescue operations, travel in extreme situations etc.
Avatar components will be used in medicine for the rehabilitation of fully or partially disabled patients giving them prosthetic limbs or recover lost senses.


Creation of an autonomous life-support system for the human brain linked to a robot, ‘avatar’, will save people whose body is completely worn out or irreversibly damaged. Any patient with an intact brain will be able to return to a fully functioning  bodily life. Such technologies will  greatly enlarge  the possibility of hybrid bio-electronic devices, thus creating a new IT revolution and will make  all  kinds of superimpositions of electronic and biological systems possible.


Creation of a computer model of the brain and human consciousness  with the subsequent development of means to transfer individual consciousness  onto an artificial carrier. This development will profoundly change the world, it will not only give everyone the possibility of  cybernetic immortality but will also create a friendly artificial intelligence,  expand human capabilities  and provide opportunities for ordinary people to restore or modify their own brain multiple times.  The final result  at this stage can be a real revolution in the understanding of human nature that will completely change the human and technical prospects for humanity.


This is the time when substance-independent minds will receive new bodies with capacities far exceeding those of ordinary humans. A new era for humanity will arrive!  Changes will occur in all spheres of human activity – energy generation, transportation, politics, medicine, psychology, sciences, and so on.

Today it is hard to imagine a future when bodies consisting of nanorobots  will become affordable  and capable of taking any form. It is also hard to imagine body holograms featuring controlled matter. One thing is clear however:  humanity, for the first time in its history, will make a fully managed evolutionary transition and eventually become a new species. Moreover,  prerequisites for a large-scale  expansion into outer space will be created as well.
