Public Speaking General Information

Kurzweil speaks frequently to diverse audiences around the world, presenting a provocative, long-term, big picture view of the future of technology and its implications for society. In his presentations he explains the exponential growth of technology (in his terms, “The Law of Accelerating Returns”) and its path toward reverse engineering the brain, nanotechnology, the merging of human and machine, and, ultimately, extreme human life extension.

These ideas form the core thesis of Kurzweil’s lectures and his best-selling book The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology. Kurzweil tailors his lectures to audiences and often speaks on: Innovation, Health and Medicine, Education, Business & Investing, Energy, and Disabilities & Assistive Technologies.
