song title: “Ray Kurzweil keynote round-up rap”
artist: by Saul Paul

Today’s keynote was the brilliant Ray Kurzweil
Hosted by Mr. Grossman, which served well
To set-up the platform that it’s a sure fail
If you’re still in the present because you’re stale

Because dude’s mind is where the future is
An accurate title: he’s a futurist
Give him some data
He’ll know what to do with it
Rewind to 1960
He’ll probably tell you who the shooter is
In ’63 — get it? — Kennedy

Wow: and right now he’s actually making these mini-mes
How: at the university of singularity
Apparently because he sees the future with such clarity
How else can I say it, he sees it clearly

No theories, he basically created Siri
The company that became it: Nuance
For him it’s easy, like installing some true fonts

So if you’re a genius, and you are good at math
You can be just like him, otherwise “sufferin’ succotash”
I don’t make the rules, I just play by them
And based on what Kurzweil says, you can’t defy them

Statistically — yeah — it’s improbable
Not impossible, just highly illogical
Looking at my watch, it seems that I have to go
Until then I encourage you stay on-point, like an icicle
