Technology will accelerate exponentially. Within 25 years, computers will have consciousness. Humans will soon be bionic. These predictions make bestselling author Ray Kurzweil (The Singularity Is Near) a prophetic genius to some, and a highly sophisticated crackpot to others. There is no question, however, that he has predicted the future with more accuracy than anyone else in history.
TRANSCENDENT MAN gets inside the mind of the award-winning scientist and A.I. specialist through extensive interviews with Kurzweil himself and revealing conversations with friends and colleagues. The film outlines Kurzweil s theory of singularity the point when change occurs so rapidly that humans will need to merge with technology to keep up while also chronicling Kurzweil s history, his myriad accomplishments (including 24 U.S. patents), and his unique vision of the future.
Bonus Features: Extended Interviews; Deleted Scenes; Tribeca Film Festival Q&A with direcotr Barry Ptolemy and Ray Kurzweil.

This is wa great video with balanced presentation of opinions about the theses. If only 50% of what Kurzweil predicts is achieved it will be a turning point in human history.Published 1 month ago by Abdurrahman Warsameh
Boring movie. Took a topic that could've been read about in less than 20 minutes and dragged it out for well over an hour.Published 2 months ago by Kenneth Orton
