The Future of Medical Technology according to Ray Kurzweil

Quote:
Although Ray Kurzweil’s initial claim to fame was his inventions (including the flatbed scanner, the first print-to-speech convertor for the blind, and a groundbreaking music synthesizer), he has received more attention in past decades for his predictions and his books. In the 1990s, he made 147 projections for 2009. In 2010, he reflected on them and determined that 86% of them were correct.
While his critics dispute the accuracy of some of his forecasts, Kurzweil has predicted the age of mobile computing, digital books, wearables, self-driving cars, and high-speed wireless data transmission. In the 1980s, he eerily predicted the emergence of a global online network long before the Internet as we now know it exists. Bill Gates has called Kurzweil “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence.”
