After a summer of speaking to potential presenters and collaborating with National Science Week, it has been decided that the Singualrity Summit in 2011 will be held during Natinoal Science Week.  The exact dates of which we are almost certain are 20th and 21st of August 2011.  It will be held in Melbourne.

The presenters lineup will include David Chalmers, Ben Goertzel, Alan Hájek, Marcus Hutter, and some speakers from last year, such as Kevin B. Korb and James Newton-Thomas etc.

We are currently negotiating with Hugo de Garis, Burkard Polster, and Hyam Rubenstein.

Further this site will be updated with new information as the summit takes more shape.

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. The goal of the Summit is to improve people’s thinking about the future and increasing public awareness of radical technologies under development today and of the transformative implications of such technologies understood as part of a larger process.
