What was Ray Kurzweil saying about the future in 1990?

Very amusing, and +1 for the Max Headroom / Doonesbury reference. :-)

More seriously, who will be around to write a funny comic if Kurzweil’s prediction that sentient AI will be inherently benevolent toward us turns out to be wrong? I’m glad that so many people are dubious, and investing time & energy toward preventing such a scenario from emerging.

Like what you read? Give John Abbe a round of applause.
