(IONSQC) Community Group will meet on Thursday, February 14, 6:30 p.m., at the Bettendorf Library.
Our February program will feature "The Singularity is Near" by author/director Ray Kurzweil. There will be a lively discussion facilitated by Cliff Day. Please join us at the Bettendorf Library at 6:30 p.m. Thursday Feb 14. No reservations are required. All are welcome to attend this free event.
The onset of the 21st Century will be an era in which the very nature of what it means to be human will be both enriched and challenged as our species breaks the shackles of its genetic legacy and achieves inconceivable heights of intelligence, material progress,and longevity.
While the social and philosophical ramifications of these changes will be profound, and the threats they pose considerable, celebrated futurist Ray Kurzweil presents a view of the coming age that is both a dramatic culmination of centuries of technological ingenuity and a genuinely inspiring vision of our ultimate destiny.
