Immortality is just around the corner, according to Kurzweil. The super-charged convergence of biology, computing, and nanotechnology, he says, is about to radically extend human life.

Tune in to hear techologist Ray Kurzweil talk about his how-to-achieve the unlimited human lifespan guide.
Ray Kurzweil, technologist and author of the bestselling book, "The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence." He is co-author of the forthcoming book, "Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever."
