    Synopsis


    Transcendent Man
    Inspired by the book The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil, Barry Ptolemy's documentary explores how Kurzweil's groundbreaking inventions and innovations have helped to advance society while potentially posing the greatest threat to mankind the world has ever known. Having previously predicted such things as the internet, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the defeat of a chess champion by a computer opponent, Kurzweil now claims that by 2029 the only means of keeping up with technological advances will be for humans to merge with the machines they've created. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
