SXSW Ray Kurzweil

Ray Kurzweil (@raykurzweil2035) spoke today on Expanding Our Intelligence Without Limit. #SXIQExpand

I didn't get to attend this session and in a way I am glad. It seems he had very good twitter-esque comments predicting what is coming toward the singularity.

The information about 3D printing, health & medicine being the new information technology, and how search engines will be moving more toward AI is really interesting stuff. With Siri and IBM's Watson, it seems plausible.

I like that there is a discussion about AI search engines judging our search terms. This is a really interesting read. The Twitter-verse had Kurzweil showing up in the Top Feed section during his session as his presentation was spreading like a virus.

Makes you wonder what is coming next?

Good project for kids I used to employ: take a current technology device and let them project what it will be in 3 years, 5 years, 10 years. What are the limitations now of the device? Let them build the device to remove those limitations.
