New York Times bestseller: Ray Kurzweil’s How to Create a Mind
November 26, 2012
How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed by Ray Kurzweil is now #5 on the New York Times Bestseller List for Hardcover Nonfiction.
It came out at #1 among all books on the Barnes & Noble bestseller list and went into its third printing one week after publication.
The book is available from the book website and from all major booksellers, and is available in all popular e-book formats.
In the book, Kurzweil explores reverse-engineering the brain to understand precisely how it works, then applying that knowledge to create vastly intelligent machines.
“Kurzweil’s new book on the mind is magnificent, timely, and solidly argued, his best so far,” said Dr. Marvin Minsky, MIT Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and cofounder of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab, widely regarded as the “father of artificial intelligence.”
How to Create a Mind is Ray Kurzweil’s seventh book, joining The Age of Intelligent Machines, The 10% Solution for a Healthy Life, The Age of Spiritual Machines, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever, The Singularity Is Near, and Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever.
