The Singularity

We've posted about inventor/futurist Ray Kurzweil before (his chart demonstrating the exponential nature of paradigm shifts is shown). He and an eclectic group of science, tech and business thinkers recently convened for the third annual Singularity Summit in San Jose, CA. The summit addresses the possibilities, time frame and hazards of a future singularity, a union of technology and evolution, of brains and smart machines. We'll have more from the summit as videos become available.
