Originally Filmed on 11/01/2005

Futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil was interviewed by Charlie Rose about his then newly released book, “The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology”. The book delves into Kurzweil’s predictions of the future and he explains his take on the technological singularity, which Vernor Vinge had brought to the public 20 years earlier in his essay “The Coming Technological Singularity”.

Kurzweil predicts the technological singularity will occur 15-20 years later than Vinge. Vernor Vinge Still Predicts the Technological Singularity Likely to Happen Before 2030.
