Google + Kurzweil = acceleration towards #singularity

December 16, 2012

Ray Kurzweil is a futurist, inventor, entrepreneur, and author. Now he’s the Director of Engineering at Google.

His life and ideas are captured in a new documentary, The Transcendent Man. Click here to watch the trailer.

From the film’s web-site:
Kurzweil predicts that with the ever-accelerating rate of technological change, humanity is fast approaching an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly non-biological and millions of times more powerful. This will be the dawning of a new civilization enabling us to transcend our biological limitations. In Kurzweil’s post-biological world, boundaries blur between human and machine, real and virtual. Human aging and illness are reversed, world hunger and poverty are solved, and we cure death.
