Several TSI members plan to attend the Singularity Summit this year in 2010. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, maybe you’ll be interested in meeting up with us there!
Interested in emerging technologies like brain-computer interfacing, regenerative medicine, human enhancement, and artificial intelligence? A fan of skeptics like James Randi or futurists like Ray Kurzweil? If so, check out the upcoming Singularity Summit, an August 14-15 conference put on by the Singularity Institute in San Francisco. The speakers list this year is better than ever, and encompasses more than twenty speakers.
Speakers include Ray Kurzweil, James Randi, Irene Pepperberg (animal intelligence expert), John Tooby (co-founder of evolutionary psychology), Dr. Anita Goel (leading bionanotechnologist), Prof. Steven Mann ("the world’s first cyborg"), Dr. Gregory Stock (famed bioethicist and author of Engineering Humans), Ellen Haber-Katz (scientist who studies fast-regenerating mice), Joe Z. Tsien (creator of the smarter "Doogie Mouse"), David Hanson (creator of the world’s most realistic humanoid robots), Brian Litt (inventor of silk brain implants), and many others. The Singularity Summit is both the premier event on the Singularity and among the most ambitious interdisciplinary emerging technologies conferences today.
