Jewish Community Center of San Francisco: Ray Kurzweil talk How to Create a Mind
Dates: Sep 17, 2013
Location: San Francisco, California
Futurist Ray Kurzweil — author, The Singularity Is Near — a pioneering theorist and inventor, now Director of Engineering at Google, has spent decades exploring how artificial intelligence can enrich and expand human capabilities. Among his innovations is a device that helps the blind read print, which Stevie Wonder says changed his life.
Kurzweil’s new book, How to Create a Mind, takes this exploration further: reverse-engineering the brain to understand how it works, then applying that knowledge to create vastly intelligent machines.
