TEDX Ray Kurzweil: The accelerating power of technology

Standard

I had a great conversation with my dad this week about all the advances in technology over the last century.  This video builds on that discussion with neat view into the future of technology in the world.

Kurzweil explains in abundant, grounded detail why, by the 2020s, we will have reverse-engineered the human brain and nanobots will be operating your consciousness.

Well worth the 20 minutes to watch.
