Ray Kurzweil takes the Singularity to the movies

Paul Raven @ 16-10-2007

Portrait of Ray Kurzweil Tired of technophobic portrayals of Artificial Intelligence in movies? Convinced that the Technological Singularity is more than just "The Rapture of the Nerds"? Then you’ll be looking forward to the movie that Singularity advocate and inventor Ray Kurzweil has in the works. Based on his book of the same title, "The Singularity Is Near" will be a blend of documentary interviews and science fictional narrative, intended to communicate Kurzweil’s ideas about the near-future destiny of mankind and its machines.

    Ray, at times, can be a bit of a wacko, but so much of his earlier work was truly brilliant; someone to always keep an eye on- a visionary.
    If anyone could pull a project like this off, it will be Ray.
    (the parties he used to hold were one of a kind; they made all of the other tech millionairs in Brookline and around Boston were always envious)
