I have a lot of experience at organizing live streaming of events, and I can confirm that all problems can be solved quite easily with existing free services and some organization.
For example David's point, that spontaneity is lost if people need to wait for a suitable microphone to reach them before they speak, is easily solved if the speaker repeats the question before answering. The only real problem is Internet connection and bandwidth, the rest is easy to solve.
Good idea to ask for small contributions, doing things well costs money.

I am really sorry to miss this talk, but don't live in London or in the U.K. David & friends, PLEASE, do something to stream the talks! If the WiFi connection at Birbeck is not good enough, I am sure you can get a 3G connection fast enough. This is the only program of this kind in Europe, you should think of us who live far!

This was a really good event. It's good to recap on what Singularity is and the current thinking. Can't think of many people who could do it from a balanced perspective as well as DW - good job! Next schedules talks look like 'musts' too. Very sorry to have to miss Oxford AI conference due to prior family commitment. At least it will save me GBP200+

The term ‘Singularity’ has ceased to have a clear meaning. It once referred to when AI is suddenly able to develop itself and leave mankind for dust. These days it can mean many different things.
In its widest application, there have already been multiple singularities ‘emerge’ out of the complex interplay between technology and society. And there are many past parallels with the singularity issues David touches upon in his notes for this talk.
A timely parallel for societal collapse might be the ‘Great War’
For the advent of ‘super-intelligence’, we could look at how the production line turned artisans into units of production that serviced machines. As for when a few gain a runaway advantage over the masses, we just have to look about ourselves.
So what is the point? I think we are all still on ‘the flat of the learning curve’. But useful insights can and do ‘emerge’ when we apply ourselves to such loose, seemingly directionless, multi-disciplinary ‘talking shops’. So thanks DW.
