Heard on Campus: Ray Kurzweil

"Within 20 years we will understand how the brain works and we'll have artificial intelligence that commands emotional intelligence at human levels. Being a human being is about going beyond our limitations -- we're the only species that can."

-- Ray Kurzweil, award-winning inventor, futurist and national best-selling author, forecasting the future of technology. Kurzweil spoke in Schwab Auditorium last night (Tuesday, Oct. 26) and was the second lecturer of the 2010-11 Distinguished Speaker Series held by the Student Programming Association.
