In this interview, Neil deGrasse Tyson (astrophysicist) talks with futurist Ray Kurzweil about the exponential progression of computing and touches on some of Kurzweil’s key predictions. If you’re familiar with Kurzweil’s public talks and interviews then you know there are certain salient points he likes to make in regards to the exponential nature of information technology (see Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns). I liked this video because it is a good collection of such points as well as a couple insights I hadn’t heard him express previously. In this video, Tyson acts primarily in the capacity of host.
