Description
Could scientists reverse-engineer the human mind and use that information to build super-intelligent computers to solve the world’s most complex problems? Arguing against the prevailing notion that the brain is simply too complex to be replicated in machine form, the author of The Singularity is Near points out how recent scientific advances—from mapping the human genome to 3-D molecular imaging—have paved the way for superior computer intelligence.

"[Ray] Kurzweil's vision of our super-enhanced future is completely sane and calmly reasoned, and his book should nicely smooth the path for the earth's robot overlords, who, it turns out, will be us."—NYTimes
