The Singularity Summit AU is Near! August 18-19 2012 to be exact.

We cordially invite you to join our extraordinary group of visionaries in business, science, technology, design, and the arts. This event offers a world of powerful ideas, a unique networking opportunity, and access to an exclusive directory of your peers.
Topics explored include artificial intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, the singularity, robotics, regenerative medicine, and big picture issues on the trajectory of human civilization. Eminent speakers will share their latest views over the course of two days.
In 2010, the US Singularity Summit was covered in a front-page article in TIME magazine.

What excites you about the future? What frightens you?
How might the future change the way we live?
And how might we change the way we live in the future?

The Singularity Summit this year will bring extraordinary people together to discuss the current status and future of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Neuroscience, Neurobiology, Art and the ensuing radical engineering feats that are impacting our lives now and will do so the future.

Speakers include Professor of Comp Sci Research at ANU Marcus Hutter, Author/Researcher/Futurist Mark Pesce, Neuroscientist/Neuroengineer Randal Koene, president of the Rationalists Society Australia Meredith Doig, Neurobiologist James Bourne, Associate Professor of Artificial Intelligence Vic Ciesielski, AI expert David Dowe, performance artist Stelarc and more.

The human species is at a unique stage in history. Scientific and technological progress is accelerating. Renowned inventor Ray Kurzweil predicts technological paradigm shifts will become increasingly common, leading to “technological change so rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history“.

What kind of change can we expect from advances in technology? Many reputable experts forecast dramatic impacts on the way we live – however the future is not laid out neatly in front of us like a buffet – but we can make informed choices, innovate, and work accordingly towards increasing the likelihood of beneficial outcomes.

Of special significance this year is the centenary of Alan Turing’s birth. To celebrate, the summit will have focus on Alan Turing and his unique impact on the history of computing, computer science, artificial intelligence, developmental biology, and the mathematical theory of computability.
