|The Singularity Summit is now in its sixth year of bi-coastal annual conferences and in San Francisco on October 13-14, 2012.

The event this October 13-14 will draw over 800 thought leaders to San Francisco's Nob Hill Masonic Center auditorium for discussions on the most revolutionary technological advancements on the horizon.
The annual conference was founded in 2006 by Ray Kurzweil, Peter Thiel, and the Singularity Institute as the first academic symposium for dialogue on the Technological Singularity.
“The Singularity Summit is the premiere conference on the Singularity,” stated Kurzweil . As we get closer to the Singularity, each year’s conference is better than the last.”
Past speakers at Singularity Summit have included Doug Hofstadter the author of I Am a Strange Loop, Peter Norvig (Google Director of Research), Sebastian Thrun (Stanford AI Lab Director), Rodney Brooks (MIT Professor of Robotics), Justin Rattner (CTO of Intel), and Stephen Wolfram (CEO and Founder of Wolfram Research).
This year's roster includes: Ray Kurzweil, Steven Pinker, Tyler Cowen, Temple Grandin, Peter Norvig, Robin Hanson, Peter Thiel, Melanie Mitchell, Vernor Vinge and Carl Zimmer. It looks to be an amazing event.
