Description

Futurist Ray Kurzweil (The Singularity Is Near), a pioneering theorist and inventor, now 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.
