In How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, the bold futurist and New York Times bestselling author of the The Singularity Is Near explores the limitless potential of reverse engineering the human brain.
Kurzweil discusses how the brain functions, how the mind emerges from the brain, and the implications of vastly increasing the powers of our intelligence in addressing the world’s problems. He examines emotional and moral intelligence and the origins of consciousness and envisions the radical possibilities of our merging with the intelligent technology we are creating.
Kurzweil is one of the world’s leading inventors and futurists, with a 30-year track record of accurate predictions. He is an inductee in the National Inventors Hall of Fame and recipient of the National Medal of Technology, the Lemelson-MIT Prize (the world’s largest for innovation), 19 honorary doctorates and awards from three U.S. presidents.
