Singularity Summit 2012 - Create the Future

The Singularity Summit will draw over 800 thought leaders to San Francisco for discussions on the most revolutionary technological advancements on the horizon.

The annual conference was founded in 2006 by Ray Kurzweil, Peter Thiel, and the Singularity Institute as the first academic symposium for dialogue on the Technological Singularity. The "Singularity" is a term defined by Vernor Vinge meaning greater-than-human intelligence in computers or augmented humans.

Past speakers at Singularity Summit have included Doug Hofstadter (author of Godel, Escher, Bach), Peter Norvig (Google Director of Research), Sebastian Thrun (Stanford AI Lab Director), Rodney Brooks (MIT Professor of Robotics), Justin Rattner (CTO of Intel), and Stephen Wolfram (CEO and Founder of Wolfram Research).
