A radical and positive perspective of the future path of human evolution from the bestselling author of How to Create a Head and The Age of Spiritual Machines that Bill Gates calls”the best man I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence for more than three years, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and fascinating supporters of the use of engineering in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he contended that computers will soon rival the entire assortment of human intellect at its very best. He assesses another step in this inexorable evolutionary process: that the marriage of human and equipment, where the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will probably be used with the vastly increased capacity, speed, and knowledge sharing skill of our creations.Anyone can grasp Mr. Kurzweil’s most important idea: that humanity’s technical knowledge was snowballing, with dizzying prospects for its future. The principles are clearly expressed. However, for those more educated and curious, the writer argues his case in fascinating detail. Filled with inventive, clinically grounded speculation. The Singularity Is Near is well worth reading just because of its abundance of advice, all lucidly presented .It’s a significant publication.
