Fascinating talk by Kurzweil where he discusses his new book. I'm going to go pick it up today! http://fora.tv/2012/...o_Create_a_Mind

I want that book so bad, but I has no money and two other books to read.

00:35 - Very interesting point, that due to hierarchical structure, in the end "subsystem" that interprets things like irony, is just as simple as one that detects shapes. 00:43 - interesting how he talks about Watson, that noone really understands how it works. It's subject that's I'm kinda obsessed with. That there's this "artifactisation" of technology. It becomes more and more complex and at same time more and more simple. At same time we get closer to cutting edge tech, while having less and less understanding of it.

Just started it, digging it so far. The hierarchical structure viewpoint is a central theme. Incredible how deep the significance of that concept is. Knowledge, evolution, the organization of matter...
