Ray Kurzweil:
"The Age of Intelligent Machines" (1990)

(Copyright © 2015 Piero Scaruffi | Terms of use )
The book collects essays written by Kurzweil and others (Margaret Litvin, Daniel Dennett, Mitchell Waldrop, Sherry Turkle, Blaine Mathieu, Seymour Papert, Douglas Hofstadter, Marvin Minsky, Edward Feigenbaum, Jeff Pepper, Brian Oakley, Harold Cohen, Charles Ames, Michael Lebowitz, Roger Schank, Allen Newell, Margaret Boden, George Gilder, etc).

The majority of these essays have not dated well because most of the theories discussed by these distinguished scientists have been abandoned, but Kurzweil's chronology of events from the ancient past to the future is cute.
