Singularity Summit 2012 — Create the Future
August 20, 2012
The Singularity Summit, open to the public, is the premier event on cutting-edge technologies including robotics, regenerative medicine, artificial intelligence, brain-computer interfacing, and more. The event this October 13-14 will draw over 800 thought leaders to San Francisco for discussions on the most revolutionary technological advancements on the horizon.
The annual conference was founded in 2006 by Ray Kurzweil, Peter Thiel, and the Singularity Institute as the first academic symposium for dialogue on the Technological Singularity. The “Singularity“ is a term defined by Vernor Vinge meaning greater-than-human intelligence in computers or augmented humans.
Past speakers at Singularity Summit have included Doug Hofstadter (author of Gödel, Escher, Bach), Peter Norvig (Google Director of Research), Sebastian Thrun (Stanford AI Lab Director), Rodney Brooks (MIT Professor of Robotics), Justin Rattner (CTO of Intel), and Stephen Wolfram (CEO and Founder of Wolfram Research).
