“Being an entrepreneur, you need to imagine what is possible. … Lots of things transform the world. Look back five or six years ago; today, you can’t remember when [an innovation] wasn’t the case. The world will comparably change in the future.” — Ray Kurzweil at UIF

Futurist, author, and inventor Ray Kurzweil spoke to the 350 fellows and faculty at the University Innovation Fellows (UIF) Silicon Valley Meetup on November 16–20, 2017 at Stanford University.
