Ray Kurzweil is currently working for Google in the AI space. He’s an inventor and was writing books about AI in the 80’s. He made a documentary at that time including an interview with Stevie Wonder.
Huge fan of Kurzweil! Do you follow him too @polpolrene ?
He even predicted MaidSafe! I wrote about it in a timeline I made for Reddit, where I listed all of his future predictions that he made across all his books. They are all great reads!
What format is that video in? I can’t get it running in my Ubuntu 14.04’s Firefox
EDIT: Nevermind, got it running in chrome
I can get you the .mp4 You know, plugin, download some video etc. But it’s .mp4. 188 MB.
I’m also a great fan of Kurzweil. I’ve read all his books, including the one about health and his last one about how the minds works.
Transcend and How to Create a Mind! Both were great!
Did you see Transcendent Man?
Yup, and most of his presentations on youtube. If you search his name and filter videos > 20 min. he’s all over the place with great presentations. His predictions about VR in the 2030’s is the most stunning to me. Nanotech in the brains that takes over .
Right with ya on that! Just gotta make sure it connects us to a distributed & free (as in “freedom!”) SAFEnet and not GoogleNet!!
@whiteoutmashups Ray Kurzweil says that in 2020 we would see sub micron 3D-printers that can print out clothes for pennies. Look at what Stratasys shows today with their new system. I’m a happy little shareholder as well ;-).
Aww… And here I was hoping for no clothes in the future!
But at least they will be cheap! Very cool Indeed! And highly customizable I’m sure!
