What an event, too bad I can't attend:
A real summit bringing together most of my hero's: Kurzweil, Hofstadter, Yudkowsky, Mckibben, as well as the leading transhumanism & AI visionaries.
Since my youth I always wished to work on the software that will form the "moral layer" of intelligent machines, that will turn them into "benevolant" friendly AI, as the singularity institute calls it. I made some progress over the years, & am now working on a very exciting emergence based AI engine as a goal-system infratrsucture, but still has much more work to do. The Singularity Institute guys seem to be already working on the Turing Police technology!
Thanks a lot for the all-too-important work!
I hope to read/hear as much as I can.
