(Youtube Direktkurzweil, via Doktorsblog)

Hier der Trailer zur Doku über den Futuristen Ray Kurzweil. Darin treten neben Kurzweil selbst auch Captain Kirk, Herbie Hancock, Alvin Toffler, Stevie Wonder und Quincy Jones auf. Kurzweil ist wahrscheinlich der bekannteste aller Techno-Utopisten und seine Ideen kann ich eigentlich auch unterschreiben, er denkt, dass Computer in 20 Jahren den Turing Test bestehen und ein Bewusstsein entwickeln werden und die Menschheit noch zu seinen Lebzeiten den Tod überwinden wird.

Snip von IMDB:

"Transcendent Man" introduces the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil, an inventor since the age of five and the most pre-eminent futurist in the world. Exploring many of the ideas and predictions in his New York Times Best-Seller, The Singularity is Near, the film focuses mostly on Kurzweil's world-wide speaking tour, as he describes a fast-approaching, radically different future in which we have merged with our computer creations, will overcome our mortality to live indefinitely, and will be billions of times more intelligent.

Heavily criticized for being too optimistic about what the future will bring and how it will affect our lives, Ray challenges his detractors even further by publicly stating for the first time his goal of using future technologies to bring back his late father. Through twenty major cities and four continents, Ray Kurzweil leads the filmmakers and the audience on a quest to reveal not only our humanity, but ultimately, our destiny.
