Singularity Summit, Aug. 14-15, on intelligence augmentation

Oooohhh! This looks really interesting. One day, I'll make the free
time/money to go to things like this...

Singularity Summit
August 14-15, 2010
San Francisco, California
http://www.singularitysummit.com

Many Foresight leaders and members will be gathering at this year's
Singularity Summit in San Francisco, expected to draw up to 1100
participants. Experts in fields including animal intelligence,
artificial intelligence, brain-computer interfacing, tissue
regeneration, medical ethics, computational neurobiology, augmented
reality, and more will share their latest research and explore its
implications for the future of humanity.

It's a bit pricey, but it's for a good cause, and there are student and
referral discounts plus discounts on the hotel rooms. I can testify
that this is a fun and stimulating event, and if a particular talk is
not in your area of interest, just go out into the hallway and meet lots
of interesting people.

Speakers include Ray Kurzweil, James Randi, Greg Stock, and Anita Goel
(who won Foresight's student prize back in 1999).

Best wishes,
