How to create a mind; the secret of human thought revealed.

Kurzweil, Ray.



336 pages




Author, inventor, and futurist, Ray Kurzweil, ties in current neuroscience research, thought experiments, and artificial intelligence inventions to present his theory on the basic algorithm of the neocortex. Presenting a thesis called pattern recognition theory of the mind (PRTM), Kurzweil details the true nature of both biological and nonbiolgical intelligence while shedding light on consciousness, free will, and identity. This fascinating study provides a map for the production of super intelligence and explores how these insights will unlock some of humanity's greatest challenges.
