 Artificial Intelligence
The Terrasem Movement Foundation's android, Bina48 is scheduled to keynote the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo at the end of this month.  This will be the first time an artificial intelligence has performed such a task.  
The android robot, Bina48 is scheduled to  keynote the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo 2012 on September 26 in Irvine, California.  This will be the first time a humanoid robot has done this.

The challenge being put to the assembly of senior learning executives is whether a humanoid could be a teacher or personal tutor in the next decade. Bina48 is nearly three years old, and is the youngest entity to ever address an audience of senior learning executives interested in learning technology.
One of the world’s most advanced social robots, Bina48 will offer a challenge to the assembly of senior learning executives: “could a humanoid robot be a teacher or personal tutor in the next decade?”

The Story of the Chessboard

The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
