Time will be 7 pm to 8 pm WEST COAST time (10 pm to 11 pm ET) this Sunday 
night, July 25.

Ray Kurzweil will be appearing on a "new national radio show on 
astrobiology for the SETI Institute hosted by SETI Astronomer Seth Shostak. 
I will be a guest this Sunday night to talk about the future of artificial 
intelligence - using the movie "I, Robot," as the starting point. Isaac 
Asimov's daughter, Robyn, will also participate.

 From the producer: The central question is - how far-fetched is this 
movie? How far are we from thinking, talking, feeling robots (and is that 
our goal), and is the vision of a android future optimistic, such as Asimov 
wrote about, or something darker? What complicated puzzles do we have to 
solve before we have intelligent robots?"
