    Interesting, but not convincing.

    Sadly, Kurzweil doesn't answer the question that titles his book, "how to create a mind". Although his explanations of how intelligent systems work are quite informative, his conclusions on consciousness are supported by a erroneous logic. He believes that computers can become conscious. Someone will have to prove how a machine that simply executes determined instructions after to its inputs can create a conscious entity (not just look like one). However, it's a great book for those who want to know more about the AI field.

    Filled with extensive knowledge of techological history and accurate predictions of the future. I especially enjoyed reading the philosophical chapters about the counciesness, identity and free will. I think I finally have an understanding about how the brain creates the mind but I need to re read again.
