    Commonwealth Club Ray Kurzweil For decades, pioneering inventor and theorist Ray Kurzweil has explored how artificial intelligence can enrich and expand human capabilities. Now he takes this exploration to the next step: reverse-engineering the brain to understand how it works, then applying that knowledge to create vastly intelligent machines. Drawing on the most recent neuroscience research, his own research and inventions in artificial intelligence, and compelling thought experiments, Kurzweil describes his new theory of how the neocortex (the thinking part of the brain) works: as a self-organizing hierarchical system of pattern recognizers. He shows how these insights could enable us to vastly extend the powers of our own mind and provides a roadmap for the creation of super-intelligence. Futurist Ray Kurzweil is author of "How to Create a Mind: The Secret of Human Thought Revealed."

The pressure of national ideology has dramatically redrawn gender roles, forcing women to become the breadwinners. NPR's Louisa Lim talked recently to North Korean refugees and travelers in China, and brings us a rare and sobering picture of life in the Hermit Kingdom.

    All Things Considered Lunch Lady Tackles Obesity One lunch lady in Colorado has seen it all. When she started 30 years ago her school made its own ketchup. Now, food is just heat-and-serve. But the pendulum is swinging back toward more natural foods in schools, and she is caught in the middle. Kids are happy with their current lunch choices, but as Eric Whitney reports, she realizes that she can have a real role in helping reduce childhood obesity.
