#LPTrendsPeople: Sharing the very unique work of two people, Amara D. Angelica and Sarah Black, and their visionary site to bring the work of science and technology that is accelerating intelligence. Meet Kurzweil Accelerating Intelligence.
Launched in 2001, KurzweilAI explores the forecasts and insights on accelerating change articulated in Ray Kurzweil’s landmark books — notably The Age of Spiritual Machines and The Singularity Is Near — and updates these books with key breakthroughs in science and technology.
From their site: The “AI” in KurzweilAI refers to “accelerating intelligence,” a core concept that underlies the exponential growth of the pervasive information-based technologies — both biological and machine — that are radically changing our world. These include biotechnology, nanotechnology & materials science, molecular electronics, computation, artificial intelligence, robotics, neuroscience, physics, Internet, energy, electronics, pattern recognition, virtual reality, human brain reverse engineering, and brain and body augmentation. The leading visionaries represented on this site cover these and other topics, and examine the trends that are profoundly impacting science, economics, the arts, politics, government, warfare, medicine, health, education, disabilities, behavior, and society.
Co-founders/editors Amara D. Angelica and Sarah Black appreciate all feedback (both positive and critical), for ideas for new features. http://www.kurzweilai.net
