Dear Mr. Kurzweil,
I’m in seventh grade, taking a research class called Da Vinci. I have to produce a 10 page annotated paper. I will produce a multimedia presentation on my topic.
My topic is immortality through genetics, nanotechnology and robotics with a special emphasis on artificial intelligence, such as living in a virtual world as an avatar.
Our teacher encouraged us to reach out to experts. I was hoping that you could answer a few questions.
I have watched your documentary Transcendent Man, and I’m currently reading your book The Singularity Is Near.
I appreciate it,
NOTE: This outstanding piece was published on the KurzweilAI site, so I will assume it’s fair use to link to it.
