Ray Kurzweil was featured in a one-on-one interview at the New York Times Global Leaders Collective, recently, discussing global accelerating change, artificial intelligence and other factors that are dramatically changing our world.
Ray Kurzweil — the noted innovator, inventor and current Director of Engineering at Google — answered questions from WSJ editor Gabriella Stern and Startup of the Year entrepreneurs covering Moore's Law, cloud computing, patents, entrepreneurship and many other topics in a recently recorded live chat.
Yesterday Alex Knapp at Forbes wrote a piece calling many of the predictions of Ray Kurzweil's book, The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence inaccurate. Specifically Knapp criticized his 2009 predictions from the book. Today, Kurzweil asked to respond and Knapp published the defence in full.
