How to Create a Mind

Ray Kurzweil

Overview

Ray Kurzweil is known for many things, such as receiving the world's largest innovation prize, writing seven books (five of which are bestsellers), and making predictions about the future - many of which turn out to be accurate years later.

Artificial intelligence is one of the topics most dear to him, which is why he's dedicated this book to describing the prerequisites technology would have to fulfill, in order to create it. He takes apart the human brain in detail to then piece it back together with technology, which shows you that we're not nearly as far away as you'd think.
