The Singularity Summit comes to the East Coast this weekend in the Big Apple. The event will feature presentations and conversations with Singulatarian luminaries such as Ray Kurzweil, Stephen Wolfram, Aubrey de Grey, Gregory Benford, Stuart Hameroff, Peter Thiel, Eliezer Yudkowsky, and many, many others. What is the Singularity? By one defintion, the Singularity is usually meant as "a future time when societal, scientific and economic change is so fast we cannot even imagine what will happen from our present perspective."
Come on and watch this collection of happy futurists and transhumanists try to peer beyond the event horizon of history. I will be covering the Summit and will report back to Reason readers next week.
