Few figures are more admired and respected in the field of technology than Raymond Kurzweil. As an inventor and futurist has expanded our ideas and enabled us to realize the nearly miraculous potential of technology to transform our lives. In his latest book, "The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology," Kurzweil presents the next stage of his compelling view of the future: the merging of humans and machines.
Kurzweil is a prize-winning author and scientist who has received the National Medal of Technology and has been inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame. His books include "The Age of Spiritual Machines," "The Age of Intelligent Machines," and "Fantastic Voyage." He lives outside Boston, Massachusetts.
Following the lecture, Kurzweil will be signing copies of "The Singularity is Near," which will be available for purchase.
Since 1986, the Toyota Lecture Series has welcomed eminent speakers who have addressed international movements in art and design as well as the cultural, historical and political currents that shape the creative process.
