Details

Many futurists posit that due to the exponential acceleration of technological development, we are on the brink of an artificial intelligence explosion where machines will surpass human intelligence. This is known as 'the Singularity'.

For our first meeting, we will start with a short presentation on the Singularity; including estimated time frames and the implications for society.

We'll finish the presentation with some discussion points, and then break for some refreshments and lively discussion!

Our hosts AutoTrader are kindly providing refreshments in the form of drinks and Greek mezze!

If you have any special dietary or access requirements, please get in touch.

Everyone will need to sign in on the door so please ensure you have RSVP'd to give the security guards an easy life :)

See you there!
