The KurzweilAI.net website is making available in PDF format a collection of essays written by technological pioneer Ray Kurzweil from 2001 - 2003. Among other things, Kurzweil is known for his innovation in the field of optical character recognition (OCR), which ultimately led to the creation of the world's first flatbed scanner and the development of print-to-speech assistive technologies.

According to the KurzweilAI.net website:

The Ray Kurzweil Reader is a collection of essays by Ray Kurzweil on virtual reality, artificial intelligence, radical life extension, conscious machines, the promise and peril of technology, and other aspects of our future world. These essays, all published on KurzweilAI.net from 2001 to 2003, are now available as a PDF document for convenient downloading and offline reading. The 30 essays, organized in seven memes (such as "How to Build a Brain"), cover subjects ranging from a review of Matrix Reloaded to "The Coming Merging of Mind and Machine" and "Human Body Version 2.0."

You can download the essays in PDF format from the KurzweilAT.net website.
