How to Create a Mind

Ray Kurzweil's new book "How to Create a Mind" is on its way to my house. It's already on the New York Times best seller list and it's not even released yet. So there you go. I got the shirt first!

The book is about reverse engineering the human brain in order to reveal the nature of intelligence. This is one road map to AGI (artificial general intelligence) and unlocking the singularity.

Ray Kurzweil has been called the modern day Edison, is the inventor of many high impact technologies and the author of several authoritative books about technology, exponential growth, health and the future. He predicted the Internet, autonomous vehicles, the smart phone and many many other inventions. Ray believes the emergence of the singularity will be a positive event and happen in the next 30-60 years.

Ray Kurzweil's book about health "Fantastic Voyage" changed how I eat and pursue health. His book "The Singularity is Near" enabled and inspired me to start StarAcer Academy with physicist Dr. Geoff Steeves.

Thanks for blowing my mind Ray!
