Engineering Machine Consciousness Monthly Meetup

  • Jan 24, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all,
This Thursday 24th, James will be stuck down a mine, so I thought it we should go to Troika again. We can discuss possible events in the future (inc talk on transhumanism at the Existentialist Society in May, and a Julian Savulescu lecture in April).

I hope to see you at Troika Thurs 24th.

This will be an informal Singularity / Future Salon / Engineering Machine Consciousness meeting discussing all things future...

  • Writing essays, posts for Humanity+ Magazine
  • Future conferences
  • Networking

When:  6.00pm onwards Thursday 24 Jan 2013

Location: Troika - 106 Little Lonsdale St Melbourne - http://www.au.timeout.com/melbourne/bars/venues/727/troika#picture2

Activities:  General discussion on all things future
What is it? The Singularity / Future Salon is a (mostly) monthly discussion group where people get together for educational, fun, and challenging presentations, discussions, and dialogue on important trends and innovations in science, technology, business, and social change. The meta-theme for the Salon is a multidisciplinary inquiry into accelerating change, and the implications, issues, and challenges that rapid ongoing change creates.
The importance of being an open-minded, broadly-interested and informed lifelong learner is one of the personal implications of accelerating change that we seek to internalize and model.
From our perspective, Future Salons serve three main purposes:
A. Education
about interesting, practical, and useful trends and tools in our rapidly changing world
B. Networking
among a multidisciplinary community of positive, practical and passionate change leaders
C. Socializing
among future oriented people, forming a regular, supportive, and fun community. http://2010.singularitysummit.com.au/about-us/singularity-salon/

This is a free event.

Discussion on the Singularity Summits just past, some of the talks and future conferences moving forward.

Boldly Creating a World that Works for All.

Look further. Think deeper. Act smarter.
Share the surprising present. Make great friends. Get more important things done.

    David Pearce asked: How do organic mind-brains solve the phenomenal binding problem?
    (http://lafollejournee02.com/texts/body_and_health/Neurology/Binding)
    The answer we give to this question determines whether we believe that nontrivial digital sentience, "uploading" scenarios and unitary software-based phenomenal minds are even feasible.
    (no on all three counts IMO. But this needs to shown...:-)
