This movie looks really good, maybe I'll watch it tonight!
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
Here's my recommendation if you're looking to do something besides G+ tonight. Go watch this Kurzweil / Singularity documentary. 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. You can rent online via Amazon. http://amzn.to/pzHKkt It's also on Netflix, search "Trancsendent Man"

So i watched this the other night with my housies. I enjoyed it, but for the most part they did not. Kurzweil tells a compelling story about how things will change in the next few decades. He talks about how the current generation of technology helps develop the next generation, so that you see this exponential increase of power and complexity especially in artificial intelligence. Kurzweil seems like an interesting guy, but I found myself appreciating the interviews with his critics even more. One guy talked about how the rise of computer intelligence will necessitate a massive human war in the next century...

anyway, recommended.

Check it out! Looks like a good one :)
Some elements of the new film "Another Earth" reflect the current state of physics and astronomy. Alien Earths, rocky exoplanets and the many worlds hypothesis are much-discussed theories today.
