If all of your browsing habits and scroll-overs haven’t been sufficient enough for current algorithms to pre-determine your wants, and needs, and product purchases, there is a new child coming of age who, simply put, is a prodigy.
Meet LEVAN (Learning EVerything About ANything) in the video below, the Artificial Intelligence program accompanied by cheery acoustics that is apparently in training to become the Forrest Gump/Bubba of the virtual realm…
In reality, it’s all a part of the agenda to get us to emote when interacting with our non-human
overlords companions. It’s not enough to simply receive information; we have to feel like it’s a trusted friend, a family member, imparting words of life-changing importance.
Please read the following chronicles of the human-AI pipeline and the mission to bring about an all-knowing, all-feeling Artificial Intelligence wrapped in a familiar face.

Not much longer to go. Futurist and a Director of Engineering at Google, Ray Kurzweil, has upped his timetable for The Singularity from 2045 to 2029 when this A.I. will be indistinguishable from any one of us, probably much smarter, and looking for some love. However,
Right now, the program is limited in how fast it can learn about a concept because of the computational power it takes to process each query, up to 12 hours for some broad concepts. The researchers are working on increasing the processing speed and capabilities.
Working, working, working…
