INTERVIEW WITH KURZWEIL AND THE DIRECTOR OF TRANSCENDANT MAN

I’ve just listened to an interview with Ray Kurzweil and the Director of the film, Transcendant Man regarding Kurzweil’s ideas and the making of the documentary. For those familiar with the ideas of Kurzweil there is nothing new in the interview. It goes over the same old territory, namely that we are moving towards the singularity (a time when machine and human intelligence merge) and our future is as part of an enhanced humanity, a kind of cyborg if you like.

There is no real challenging of Kurzweil’s claims which would have made the interview far more interesting. However for those unfamiliar with Kurzweil’s theories the interview is certainly worth watching as it provides a good summary of his ideas.
