Ray Kurzweil

When: Wed., Jan. 23, 7 p.m. 2013

Given that we ran our 3,000-word interview with futurist inventor Ray Kurzweil just last week, suffice it to say that he's the author of 2005's The Singularity Is Near, the controversial bestseller in which he makes the real-life case for a post-human world wherein the line between man and machine is irrevocably eradicated. Oh yeah, and also that he invented a reading machine for the blind (Stevie Wonder bought the very first one way back in the '70s), launched a line of state-of-the-art synthesizers that's been going for three decades, and has just been hired by Google to teach its computers how to think. He'll try to do the same for you during his free Distinguished Speaker Series lecture at 7 tonight in CSU-Pueblo's Hoag Recital Hall (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo, colostate-pueblo.edu). — Bill Forman
