Congrats to the World Transhumanist Association for getting a topline feature on the New Scientist website.
Plus a discussion in the LA Times
Ray: … I am making a movie based on the book Singularity is Near. It has an A-line documentary, and a B-line story. And in the B-line story, I have an AI that tries to pass the [Turing] test in 2029. It does not actually succeed in 2029, but she goes on to try again.
Ian: So this is a science fiction movie that you are producing right now, or someone is producing with you?
Ray. Yes. The movie is called “The Singularity is Near: A True Story About the Future.” The A-line documentary has me interviewing 20 big thinkers on their ideas about the future, and their ideas on my ideas, people like Marvin Minsky, and Alvin Toffler and others. And then the B-line is an actual narrative story illustrating the ideas.
It sounds kind of like a Discovery Channel feature 2057
