A trailer for a documentary about Ray Kurzweil.

This month we’ve seen:

  • A robot doing research on yeast enzyme genetics making observations, forming theories, devising experiments to test its theories, and successfully carrying out its experiments.
  • A computer program deriving fundamental laws of physics from a dataset of pendulum measurements, and more importantly, not deriving any equations at all when it was tested with random data.
  • The first circuit board created by a rapid prototyping machine to reproduce one of it’s own circuit boards.

I’m just sayin…
