||Synopsis: 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.

Ray Kurzweil has known he wanted to be an inventor from the age of 5,
and has now been at it for all those years. Along the way he realized
that the timing of inventions was critical to their success, otherwise
most inventions fail. Think e-readers 10 years ago, tablet PC's 7 years
ago, and the Apple Newton all bombs then, but now the timing is
right. So he started analyzing technology trends and discovered the
"law of accelerating returns"; in summary that technology grows in a
predictable and exponential patterns and that amazing things our in our
future. Ray has had amazing success with his publicly made predictions.
For instance, in the book "The Age of Spirtual Machines", he made 147
predictions for the year 2009, of which 86% are correct or essentially
correct. (Reference: "How My Predictions are Faring, Ray Kurzweil, Oct.
http://c0068172.cdn2.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/predictions.pdf ) In
other words when Ray Kurzweil speaks, people listen and you should too.
I will admit, when I first heard is ideas of how man will evolve with
technology, I was quite skeptical. But as I dug deeper into why he was
saying this would happen, I began to see the trends are in his favor.
Think about it; have you noticed that technology has been moving at a
quickening pace lately?
The film follows Ray over several years, catching him on his lecture
circuit, at his company, his home, and traveling about. Throughout the
film Ray explains the "law of accelerating returns" and where it will
lead to. Also Ray's critics and supporters give their opinions
throughout. Ray himself seems to be an incredibly calm individual who
rarely strays from his relaxed tone of speaking. Ray's trends predict
that technology trends are crossing over into health-care and that if
you can live for another 15 years you have the chance of living a very
long time. Ray's predictions give us hope in a time when so much around
us seems gloomy. The documentary is a fascinating look at Ray and his
ideas, and I highly recommend it.
