    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst Meeting of minds here. Ray Kurzweil talks with Lex Fridman and the outcome is awesome. Talking about the Singularity forecasts, beliefs and controversies, what is going to happen to us as individuals and species, and to the world itself when and if an AGI "starts" to be as a sentient conscious entity. Talking about Superintelligence, on how technology is going to help us to reach higher levels of intelligence and how. Talking about issues like Ageing and Immortality, if this is possible, and how it could be possible in different ways and how this could (in fact would) absolutely transform us. The implications are that we are living in an age of changes, some of them more rapid than others, but all with huge implications on what humanness is, with possible transformations which have no equivalent in history since the development of self-consciousness and persona identity in the shadows of time. There are many the topics in this talk, from nuclear war to nanotechnology to everything digital. Just watch it, and enjoy an optimistic point of view on our future.
