Episode Info:

Welcome to A Very Special Episode of THE MONTAGE Podcast: a 2019 predictions special. We compare the predictions for 2019 made by tech sayer of sooths Ray Kurzweil and check whether his grand proclamations are at all close to reality. Kathryn wrote two Extremely Insightful articles on this very subject, and we decided that because Ray had made just so many damn predictions, we should dedicate a whole podcast to his suggestions, taken from two of his key books, The Age Of Intelligent Machines (1990) and The Age of Spiritual Machines (1999). So this podcast is all you need to figure out what's going to happen in the next 12 months (and beyond - Ray's not correct all the time), so gird your loins for a shortly-arriving world of exoskeletons, aggressive neo-Luddites, 3D-printed human skin and robot butlers. Oh, and Kathryn also fondly imagines a future where she has a giant flap of real human skin to test her make-up on. It's all in Episode 14!
