批評家のレビュー

“Anyone can grasp Mr. Kurzweil’s main idea: that mankind’s technological knowledge has been snowballing, with dizzying prospects for the future. The basics are clearly expressed. But for those more knowledgeable and inquisitive, the author argues his case in fascinating detail.... The Singularity Is Near is startling in scope and bravado.” (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)

“Filled with imaginative, scientifically grounded speculation.... The Singularity Is Near is worth reading just for its wealth of information, all lucidly presented.... [It’s] an important book. Not everything that Kurzweil predicts may come to pass, but a lot of it will, and even if you don’t agree with everything he says, it’s all worth paying attention to.” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

“[An] exhilarating and terrifyingly deep look at where we are headed as a species.... Mr. Kurzweil is a brilliant scientist and futurist, and he makes a compelling and, indeed, a very moving case for his view of the future.” (The New York Sun)

A radical and optimistic view of the future course of human development from the best-selling author of How to Create a Mind and The Singularity is Nearer who Bill Gates calls “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence”.

For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: The union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.

Fun Chew

Despite having been written in 2005, The Singularity is Near has plenty of relevant food for thought to chew on. As a neuroscience major with a sub-interest in AI I found myself frequently marveling at the accuracy with which Kurzweil made his predictions referring to the 20s and 30s and the way that computation and brain research would end up marrying in order to produce a more complex understanding of our brain and nervous system. With such projects as the NeuraLink, among other BCI tech in development, the data we're due to receive on the brain will be staggering, and with machine learning to help sort the data the application of that knowledge will be astounding.

This was a fun book to mull over and I definitely recommend it, because the predictions are interesting for modern comparison.

A possible future

A great book. While the exact prediction and dates could be wrong, this book contains great ideas, predictions, and useful visions about the possible future. A must-read for all scientists, engineers, and tech enthusiasts alike.

Ray is extremely intelligent!

Definitely tricky to get through. Ray is unbelievably intelligent. I'm very anxious for the future.
