As an inventor, Ray Kurzweil was named the “rightful heir to Thomas Edison" by Inc. magazine. Spending endless amounts of time and energy on research, Kurzweil has developed an insightful expertise in technologies. He has foreseen the needs of the market, and satisfied them with product and projects. His perspectives are confident and assuring.
His theories on the long-term trend in future technology are thorough and exciting. He argues that by 2020 we will have computers powerful enough to simulate the human brain. However, humans will not have finished reverse engineering the complex organ, nor have determined the depth of the process. With the accelerating speed of growth in IT, human development must proceed at the same pace.
