For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future.

Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.
