Description

 The law of accelerating returns (which states that the key measures of information technology progress at an exponential not linear rate) has important implications for our interpretation of the Drake formula and the likelihood of finding ETI's in our light sphere. Ray Kurzweil will present this special lecture for the Singularity University (http://singularityu.org) and the SETI Institute.
