Aaron Thibeault (thebookreporter) | 95 comments Just finished reading Ray Kurzweil's new book How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed. The book charts the progress of artificial intelligence, and points up how these machines are already operating according to the same principles as our brains. As our understanding of the brain continues to advance, Kurzweil argues, we will be able to use this knowledge to build machines that are ever more human-like--until, eventually, our machines will achieve human-level intelligence, and beyond. The book is inspiring and daunting all at once. I've written an executive summary of the book available here: http://newbooksinbrief.com/2012/11/27...

Cheers,
Aaron

Thanks for the suggestion, Aaron. I've put it on hold at the library.
