Singularity Summit 2010
This year, the Singularity Summit 2010 (SS10) will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco, California, in a 1100-seat ballroom on August 14-15.
Our speakers will include Ray Kurzweil, author of The Singularity is Near; James Randi, magician-skeptic and founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation; Terry Sejnowski, computational neuroscientist; Irene Pepperberg, pioneering researcher in animal intelligence; David Hanson, creator of the world's most realistic human-like robots; and many more. In all, the conference will include over twenty speakers, including many scientists presenting on their latest cutting-edge research in topics like intelligence enhancement and regenerative medicine.
A variety of discounts are available for those wanting to attend the conference for less. If you
Additional discounts are available for students, $1,000+ SIAI donors, and attendees who refer others who pay full price (no student referrals). Students receive $100 off whatever the current price is, and attendees gain a $100 discount per non-student referral. These discounts are stackable, so a student who refers four non-students who pay full price before the end of June can attend for free. You can ask us more about discounts at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Singularity Summit ticket is a tax-deductible donation to SIAI, almost all of which goes to support our ongoing research and academic work.
If you've been to a Singularity Summit before, you'll know that the attendees are among the smartest and most ambitious people you'll ever meet. Scientists, engineers, writers, reporters, philosophers, tech policy specialists, and entrepreneurs all join to discuss the most important questions of our time.
