Today’s Video Friday is a special feature, the seminal Stanford symposium “Will Spiritual Robots Replace Humanity by 2100?” which occurred on on April 1, 2000.

Video of this important event has unfortunately been unavailable online until now.

Douglas Hofstader hosts a panel of eight who discuss the future of the human race and beyond. Running nearly five hours, this panel discussion includes luminaries

  • Douglas Hofstader
  • Bill Joy
  • Ray Kurzweil
  • Hans Moravec
  • John Holland
  • Kevin Kelly
  • Frank Drake
  • John Koza

Part 1, included here, runs just over an hour and a half. Parts 2 and 3 will appear over the next two weeks.

These videos are unavailable anywhere else on the Internet and are I think important. We are grateful to be able to share them with the H+ Magazine audience at this time.
