Glenn Reynolds links to this excerpt of a Glenn Beck interview of Google's Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen about artificial intelligence and related topics.

In the excerpt, Schmidt does all the answering, and has what seems to me a rather measured and thoughtful view of things, including skepticism about (now Google employee) Ray Kurzweil's timeline of when things will happen.
