Announcing a new Meetup for New York Artificial Intelligence Forum!

What: Singularity Summit '09

When: October 3/4,[masked]:00 AM

92nd Street Y
Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street
New York, NY 10036

The Singularity Summit is on October 3rd & 4th at the 92nd Street Y. Lots of good speakers.

I generally don't intend to focus all that much about the 'Singularity' per se in this group. My feeling is that any Singularity is dependent on AI (weak or strong) but that AI is not dependent on the rest of the Singularity deck of topics. Nevertheless there should be a lot of interesting topics around AI at the Summit.

We will meet for Lunches and/or Dinners and play "Who's the AI from the Future attending in disguise?".

If you register, please drop me a note and I'll send you a referring coupon code. If you get a code, send it to me and once I use my 2 I'll pass the references on cool.

The Singularity Summit is the premier dialog on the Singularity.

The first Singularity Summit was held at Stanford in 2006 to further understanding and discussion about the Singularity concept and the future of human technological progress. It was founded as a venue for leading thinkers to explore the subject, whether scientist, enthusiast, or skeptic.

Since 2006, the scope of this dialog has expanded dramatically. In 2008, the Singularity entered mainstream consideration. IEEE Spectrum, a sober and mainstream technology publication, issued a special report on the Singularity, and Intel CTO Justin Rattner remarked that "we're making steady progress toward the Singularity" during his keynote to 2,000 people at the Intel Developer Forum. What was once a relatively unknown concept is now being discussed in corporate board rooms.

We invite you to join our extraordinary group of visionaries in business, science, technology, design, and the arts, as our community explores this exciting topic. Your participation offers a world of powerful ideas, a unique networking opportunity, and access to an exclusive directory of your peers.

We hope you will join us October 3rd.
