This is a documentary on the American futurist Ray Kurzweil, a multi-millionaire, inventor, and author of numerous books, has proposed a theory that in less than five decades the speed of change occurring in society will be too quick for humans to comprehend without directly merging our intelligence with machines. It sounds very 80s sci-fi-ish. The first portion of his beliefs, the accelerating speed of change, is undeniable… but to enhance ourselves to keep up with it…? I have to argue, we can’t keep up with something that is already beyond the majority.
The movie sounds interesting enough, but a little far fetched. I’ll check it out to check to see what else there is to learn from the subject.
