Kurzweil vs. Dertouzos debate future technology

from the who-won? dept.
Joseph Sterlynne writes "MIT's Technology Review has printed an exchange between Ray Kurzweil and Michael Dertouzos regarding the latter's recent article on reasonable expectations of technological progress." Kurzweil: "As for nanotechnology-based self-replication, that's further out, but the consensus in that community is this will be feasible in the 2020s, if not sooner." Dertouzos: "We have no basis today to assert that machine intelligence will or will not be achieved…Attention-seizing, outlandish ideas are easy and fun to concoct."
