2010 Singularity Summit - A Meeting of the Minds
The 2010 Singularity Summit, held this past weekend in San Francisco, was, quite literally a meeting of the minds. Not just because the assembled group consisted of a fair number of the brainiest people on the planet, and not just because the general consensus was that a meshing of silicon hardware with our carbon wetware appears to be a future inevitability, but also because of the discussion about animal intelligence and how it is similar to yet different from our own.
Now that the event is a week in the past there have been a number of very interesting posts written on what happened there and what people think of it. I've taken the time to pull together a detailed listing of the event itself as well as the press the Summit received and I've organized it into the Pearltree below.
