Singularity Summit at Stanford

Palo Alto, California

Stanford Memorial Auditorium
Palo Alto, California

The Symbolic Systems Program at Stanford University is hosting a rare gathering of thinkers to explore the rising impact of science and technology on society: the Singularity Summit. (http://sss.stanford.edu/) The summit has been organized to further the understanding of a controversial idea, the singularity scenario, defined as an "event horizon" in the predictability of human technological development past which present models of the future cease to give reliable or accurate answers, following the creation of strong artificial intelligence or the enhancement of human intelligence. Over the course of one day, the event will focus on the nature and ramifications of the singularity, and the debates which form the foundation for further research.
