The webcast for the Ray Kurzweil talk on NPR is now up at On Point:
Immortality is just around the corner, says technologist Ray Kurzweil. All you need to do to achieve it is hang on until the wonder of life-extending technologies such as self-repairing nanobots and therapeutic-cloning take hold.
With any luck, Kurzweil says, it may be just a matter of decades, not centuries, before the human lifespan becomes infinite -- not 100 but 200 years long.
Tune in to hear techologist Ray Kurzweil talk about his how-to-achieve the 200-year human lifespan guide.
The copywriters apparently have a fairly loose grasp on the concept of infinity, but no matter. Get thee hence and listen to the discussion! The webcast is available in Windows, Real and Quicktime streams.
