A radical and optimistic view of the future course of human development from the bestselling author ofÂ How to Create a Mind and The Age of Spiritual MachinesÂ who Bill Gates calls âthe best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligenceâ
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.
