Transcendent Man: Exploring Ray Kurzweil’s Vision of the Singularity

Transcendent Man – The Law of Accelerating returns
Ray Kurzweil on Law of Accelerating Returns:

Ray Kurzweil: The law of accelerating return is what I refer to as the acceleration of technology. The nature of technology progress is exponential. If I count 30 steps linearly: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7… I reach 30. If I count exponentially, 2, 4, 8, 16, 30 steps later, I am at a billion. It can make a huge difference.

TRANSCENDENT MALE chronicles the ideas and life of Ray Kurzweil. Kurzweil is a futurist and inventor who has a bold vision for the Singularity. This is envisioned as a time in the future when technology will change so quickly that we’ll need artificial intelligence to keep pace. Ray Kurzweil predicts that this will mark the dawn of a new civilisation in which humans will no longer depend on their physical bodies. We will also be billions of time more intelligent, and there will not be a clear distinction between real and virtual reality, or human and machine.
