PBS NewsHour | Ray Kurzweil on Bringing Back the Dead | PBS

Duration: 04:12
Program: PBS NewsHour #10370
Broadcast Date: Jul. 12, 2012

Thursday's outtake with Mr. Immortality: does Kurzweil believe that an avatar of his dead father -- created with artificial intelligence and a lifetime's worth of data and mementos -- is, well, his actual father, the guy who died when Ray was 22? We asked him how that quest influenced his goal of "immortality today."
