Unfortunately, this month's tentative speaker canceled last minute and we were unable to find a replacement on such short notice. Therefore, I – Daniel Sieradski, the host and founder of the NYC Jewish Tech Meetup – will be filling in with a presentation I delivered recently at the Judaism 2030 conference entitled, "Jeuromancer: Transhumanism, Bioethics & the Dystopian Jewish Future." The presentation will explore the scientific concept of the Singularity and its implications for the future of Jewish life and learning.
