For decades, pioneering inventor and theorist Ray Kurzweil has explored how artificial intelligence can enrich and expand human capabilities. Now he's taking this exploration to the next step: reverse-engineering the brain to understand how it works, then applying that knowledge to create vastly intelligent machines. Drawing on the most recent neuroscience research, his own research and inventions in artificial intelligence, and compelling thought experiments, Kurzweil has formed a new theory of how the neocortex (the thinking part of the brain) works as a self-organizing system of pattern recognizers. At this appearance, he'll discuss how these exciting insights could enable us to vastly extend the powers of our own mind and provide a roadmap for the creation of superintelligence.
