A radical and optimistic view of the future course of human development from the bestselling author ofÃÂ How to Create a Mind and The Age of Spiritual MachinesÃÂ who Bill Gates calls Ã¢ÂÂthe best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligenceÃ¢ÂÂ
For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.
