I was fortunate enough to meet Mr Kurzweil at a keynote speaking engagement that I was doing video support for.

Winston Churchill’s maxim that, “the further backward you look, the further forward you can see” sums up the sharp intellect of a man that created Optical Character Recognition in the 70’s ( a Text to Speech Technology that allowed the blind to “read”) as well as significant work as an inventor.  I was fortunate enough to meet Mr Kurzweil at a keynote speaking engagement that I was doing video support for.  He’s been a technological hero of mine since high school.  Kurzweil AI is the website where you can go and check out some of the amazing things that he is involved with.  Check out his thoughts on nature of exponential growth as it relates to technology and inventing!
