Netlaw Media has today announced that Ray Kurzweil has been confirmed to deliver the Keynote Presentation at Europe’s biggest legal IT conference and exhibition ‘LawTech Futures 2013 – The Future of Legal Technology’ in London.
London (I-Newswire) July 2, 2012 - Kurzweil has been described as “the restless genius” by the Wall Street Journal, and “the ultimate thinking machine” by Forbes. Inc. magazine ranked him #8 among entrepreneurs in the United States, calling him the “rightful heir to Thomas Edison,” and PBS included Ray as one of 16 “revolutionaries who made America,” along with other inventors of the past two centuries.
As one of the leading inventors of our time, Kurzweil was the principal developer of the first CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition.
Among Kurzweil’s many honors, he is the recipient of the $500,000 MIT-Lemelson Prize, the world's largest for innovation. In 1999, he received the National Medal of Technology, the nation's highest honor in technology, from President Clinton in a White House ceremony. In 2002, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, established by the US Patent Office. In addition, Ray Kurzweil has received nineteen honorary Doctorates and honors from three U.S. presidents.
Ray Kurzweil has written four national bestselling books including four national bestselling books. Kurzweil’s book, The Singularity is Near, was a New York Times best seller, and has been the #1 book on Amazon in both science and philosophy. His next book, How to Create a Mind, The Secret of Human Thought Revealed, will be released by Viking in November 2012.
Following a capacity sell out in 2012, LawTech Futures 2013 will take place at the QEII Conference Center in Westminster, London on 30th April 2013.
