Upcoming Speakers in the Series
Ray Kurzweil has been described as "the restless genius" by the Wall Street Journal, and "the ultimate thinking machine" by Forbes. A leading inventor of our time, he was the principal developer of the first CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition. Ray Kurzweil hits The Smith Center stage as a part of the Audi Speaker Series, discussing his latest book, "How to Create a Mind, The Secret of Human Thought Revealed."
