  • 卓越的人类剧情简介
      TRANSCENDENT MAN chronicles the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil, an inventor and futurist that presents 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 of a new civilization in which we will no longer be dependent on our physical bodies, we will be trillions of times more intelligent and 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...
      Technology will accelerate exponentially. Within 25 years, computers will have consciousness. Humans will soon be bionic. These predictions make bestselling author Ray Kurzweil (The Singularity Is Near) a prophetic genius to some, and a "highly sophisticated crackpot" to others. There is no question, however, that he has predicted the future with more accuracy than anyone else in history...
      Transcendent Man gets inside the mind of the award-winning scientist and A.I. specialist through extensive interviews with Kurzweil himself and revealing conversations with friends and colleagues. The film outlines Kurzweil's theory of singularity-the point when change occurs so rapidly that humans will need to merge with technology to keep up-while also chronicling Kurzweil's history, his myriad accomplishments (including 24 U.S. patents), and his unique vision of the future...

    很多事情不由科学家帮你点明,可能不能直观地意识到科技的力量之大。抗拒进化会就被淘汰,没有对错之分。可穿戴式设备已经很普遍,虽然在很多人眼里还是陌生的玩意。看到某科学家的植入式设备和家中感应器互联,希望过个几十年自己可以体验到。(原来厦门大学也是有牛逼外教的啊 )

    课上看的,讲了Ray Kurzweil和他的书The Singularity is Near所展现的科技将如何在未来几十年里快速发展,并取代人类“统治”这个地球。没字幕所以有时看的不太懂,但是整体来说关于未来的事总是很有意思,也庆幸自己没有活在影片里所说的世界。看着片子,心里想象着未来世界无限的可能性还是很棒的!
