Law of Accelerating Returns-

Exponential Growth-the singularity is near movie-about ray movie

Transcendent Man Ray Kurzweil: Acceleration of technology is the implication of what I call the law of accelerating returns. The nature of technological progress is exponential. If I count linearly 30 steps: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… I get to 30. If I count exponentially: 2, 4, 8, 16… 30 steps later I’m at one billion. It makes a dramatic difference.

The singularity documentary that chronicles the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil, the inventor and futurist known for his bold vision of the Singularity, a point in the near future when technology will be changing so rapidly, that we will have to enhance ourselves with artificial intelligence to keep up.   Ray predicts this will be the dawning a new civilization wherein we can not be depending on our physical bodies. We will be billions of times more intelligent. There will be no clear distinction between human and machine, real reality and virtual reality. Human aging and illness will be reversed world hunger and poverty will be solved and we will ultimately cure death.   Critics accuse Ray of being too optimistic and argue that the dangers of the Singularity far outweigh the benefits, pointing out the apocalyptic implications that once machines achieve consciousness. We may not be able to control them. whether Ray’s debatable thoughts incite pleasure or fear, dogma or disbelief this formidable documentary will all the time exchange the manner you study life, death, and your own destiny.
