The Singularity Institute presents The Singularity Summit 2010, a conference that explores the impact of science and technology on society. It takes place August 14-15 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.
The first Singularity Summit was held at Stanford in 2006 to further understanding and discussion about the Singularity concept and the future of human technological progress. It was founded as a venue for leading thinkers to explore the subject, whether scientist, enthusiast, or skeptic. The goal of the Summit is to improve people’s thinking about the future and increasing public awareness of radical technologies under development today and of the transformative implications of such technologies understood as part of a larger process.
