Inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil predicts that the next 100 years will bring as much technological progress as the previous 20,000. Humanity is currently experiencing an unprecedented rate of change. That change accelerates as science-fiction tropes – flying cars, robot surgeons, even Star Trek’s immersive holodeck – become real. Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler offer a tour of exciting and imminent innovations, and predict their profound effects on industry, culture, science and daily life.
