Ray Kurzweil does not understand the brain: "He seems to have the tech media convinced that he’s a genius, when he’s actually just another Deepak Chopra for the computer science cognoscenti." from science
It’s a bit like gartners hype curve,
in the beginning it will come in twenty years (but that’s overly optimistic)
ten years later, it will come in 20 years for real
ten years later people got used to ‘it’s always 20 years away’ but in reality it’s only 10 years away
This supposedly revolutionary system is being pushed hard by Ray Kurzweil, that insane lunatic who’s behind all that talk of The Singularity, that moment after which the future will be incomprehensible to us and impossible to predict because of how goddamn fast progress will be going.
