Summary
Ray Kurzweil examines the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in the brain will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of creations. While the social and philosophical ramifications of these changes will be profound, and the threats they pose considerable, Kurzweil maintains a radically optimistic view of the future course of human development
