Kurzweil AI.net has some good stuff


I knew about this site but recently came across a link to another quite interesting article, "Why We Can be Confident of Turing Test Capability Within a Quarter of a Century".


Yes, Kurzweil's books are too long and repetitive, and he does hold some unusual views, but the guy's a total genius and always fun to read. I don't think the article delivers on the subtitle: 


"The advent of strong AI (exceeding human intelligence) is the most important transformation this century will see, and it will happen within 25 years, says Ray Kurzweil [...]" (from Why We Can Be Confident of Turing Test Capability Within a Quarter Century


This article still is an excellent review of the state of the art in AI and is highly readable. The Kurzweil AI site itself is also worth keeping an eye on!
