Ray Kurzweil Talks Transcendent Man at Tribeca Film Fest

(YouTube)Last night the famous technology pioneer, best-selling author, and controversial prophet Ray Kurzweil participated in a lively discussion with Robert Krulwich (cohost of WNYC’s Radiolab) after a screening of the documentary Transcendent Man at the Tribeca Film Festival. The thought-provoking film is both a fascinating character study of Kurzweil, who is obviously a genius, and an entertaining look at the heated debate over where biotechnology and artificial intelligence is taking us.

Kurzweil predicts because of Moore’s Law, it’s only a matter of time (he says 2039) before our technology achieves Singularity, which he describes as the point when artificial intelligence will radically advance, enabling our species to “transcend biology” and, with the help of nanotechnology in our bloodstream, become a sort of Human 2.0, a mix of machine and man. He believes we will have created benevolent computerized gods who, rather then enslave us, will enable us to merge with them and live forever—a prediction that Transcendent Man reveals.
