Well-done documentary on the singularity: ‘Transcendent Man’

I just watched Tran­scen­dent Man about the sin­gu­lar­ity and Ray Kurzweil in par­tic­u­lar. It’s well-made, full-length, and in­cludes the most pop­u­lar crit­i­cisms of Kurzweil: that his pre­dic­tion timeframes are driven by his own hope for im­mor­tal­ity, that the timescale of his other pre­dic­tions are too op­ti­mistic, that his pre­dic­tions about the so­cial out­comes of rev­olu­tion­ary tech­nol­ogy are naively op­ti­mistic, and so on. Ben Go­ertzel and oth­ers get much face time.
