Singularity Summit

On May 13th, Stanford's Symbolic Systems Program will be hosting the Singularity Summit, where many of today's leading futurist thinkers will speak on the profound implications of the Singularity. The event will include such note worthy speakers as Eliezer Yudkowsky and Tyler Emerson of the Singularity Institute, author and inventor Ray Kurzweil, Max Moore of the Extropy Institute, nanotechnology pioneer Eric Drexler, philosopher Nick Bostrom, and cognitive scientist Douglas R. Hofstadter among many others. This exciting and historic event will be free to the public and will hopefully serve to generate greater awareness and understanding of these ideas among the general public.
