Esteemed futurist Ray Kurzweil has joined Google as Director of Engineering.  His focus will be machine learning and language processing, and will lead to advances in networks, data centers and algorithms.

“I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Google to work on some of the hardest problems in computer science so we can turn the next decade’s ‘unrealistic’ visions into reality,” Kurzweil said.
