How does the brain recognise images? Could computers drive? How is it possible for man-made programmes to beat the world's best chess players? In this fascinating look into the human mind, Ray Kurzweil relates the advanced brain processes we take for granted in our everyday lives, our sense of self and intellect — and explains how artificial intelligence, once only the province of science fiction, is rapidly catching up. Effortlessly unravelling the complexity of his subject, unfolding such key areas as love, learning and logic, he shows how the building blocks for our future machines exist underneath. Kurzweil examines the radical possibilities of a world in which humans and intelligent machines could live side by side.

    🎯Worthwhile

    Последняя на сегодня и самая насыщенная книга Курцвейла. Общие сведения из нейробиологии особенно интересны вместе с последующим описанием навеянной ими частички логики Nuance'овского распознавания речи. К тому же, глава с его знаменитыми спекуляциями вокруг закона Мура - Law of Accelerating Returns - лучше всего именно как глава (The Singularity is Near, целая книга спекуляций Курцвейла, так и осталась мною не осилена).

Quotes

    Yury Shevchenkohas quoted3 years ago
    The Brain—is wider than the Sky—
    For—put them side by side—
    The one the other will contain
    With ease—and You—beside—
    The Brain is deeper than the sea—
    For—hold them—Blue to Blue—
    The one the other will absorb—
    As Sponges—Buckets—do—
    The Brain is just the weight of God—
    For—Heft them—Pound for Pound—
    And they will differ—if they do—
    As Syllable from Sound
    —Emily Dickinson
    Vasily Betinhas quoted3 years ago
    any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex…but it takes…a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction
    Polina Pecheritsahas quoted4 years ago
    It is difficult to escape Schopenhauer’s conclusion that “you can do what you will, but in any given moment of your life you can will only one definite thing and absolutely nothing other than that one thing.”
