Ray Kurzweil Joins Google As Director of Engineering

Fernando Jones Re:Why? (148 comments)

"He's still a clown with no credibility." Speaking of credibility. I wonder whose judgement of Kurzweil is the more credible, this anonymous guy on slashdot who sounds a bit TOO annoyed or multibillion dollar tech company Google?

Scientists Unveil Worlds First Computerized Human Brain Map

Fernando Jones Re:Only male? (73 comments)

Why would male brains be easier to understand? I'm far more impressed by what male brains have done up to this point. Top marks on the cliches though!

Google Cars Drive Themselves, In Traffic

Fernando Jones Re:That's great and all, but... (293 comments)

I know what you mean and i think there will be plenty of people out there just like you but i think these self driving vehicles will eventually become mandatory due to how much safer they are statistically. At that point, would the people who really wanted to drive cars manually be that much different to those who wanted to smoke in bars before it was banned? In my opinion, it kind of becomes a selfish hobby if it has been proven to be so much more dangerous (which i think it will be eventually).

Ray Kurzweil Responds To PZ Myers

Fernando Jones Re:The best resolution... (238 comments)

Uh no..because Kurzweil does not refute Myer's claims. Kurzweil's response underscores Myer's points. Kurzweil is an idiot.

"For starters, I said that we would be able to reverse-engineer the brain sufficiently to understand its basic principles of operation within two decades, not one decade, as Myers reports." There you go. You only had a read a few lines and you would find a pretty clear refutation.
