singularity-summit-2009In a radical shift from previous years, the  fourth annual Singularity Summit is slated to take place October 3-4 in New York instead of technology hotbed Silicon Valley.  The Singularity Summit, hosted by the SIAI, for several years has been the premier singularity focused event of the year.  Last year the hub attended the summit in San Jose, CA and produced the web’s most comprehensive review of the event – we hope to do the same this year as well.

Headlining the event will of course be de facto singularity frontman Ray Kurzweil.  Also speaking at the event will be dozens of other distinguished individuals from the scientific and philosophical community, including David Chalmers, Ben Goertzel, Aubrey De Grey, Eliezer Yudkowsky, Peter Thiel, and William Dickens.  The full list and schedule of speakers is located here.

Below is a promotional video about the summit:

    Great for the attendees…videos from the summit should be available for public viewing in a horrible format on the SIAI website in about two years. Well that came off a bit cranky sounding but I think it is the less informed public that really needs to hear this stuff.
