The Singularity Summit Australia 2010 is a rare gathering of thinkers to explore the rising impact of science and technology on society. The summit has been organized to further the understanding of a controversial idea – the Singularity scenario.
This is the very first Singularity Summit outside the US – and it will be held in Melbourne, Australia on the 7th, 10th(fri), 11th and the 12th(sun) of Sept.
This Summit held in Melbourne with local luminaries and big thinkers will be an excellent opportunity to see many inspiring talks and discussion panels.
To get an idea of the level of quality of presentations given in previous years go to the Singularity Instutute Media page.
This is your chance to hear world-class speakers, and meet Australian and internationally acclaimed enthusiasts, geeks, transhumanists, singularitarianists, skeptics, humanists, rationalists and possibly even academics and scientists in one of Australia’s most vibrant and exciting cities.
We hope you will join us on September 7th, 10th, 11th & 12th.

The Singularity Summit this year will be held at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco, California on Aug 14-15th.
“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.
Since 2006, the scope of this dialog has expanded dramatically. In 2008, the Singularity entered mainstream consideration. IEEE Spectrum, a sober and mainstream technology publication, issued a special report on the Singularity, and Intel CTO Justin Rattner remarked that “we’re making steady progress toward the Singularity” during his keynote to 2,000 people at the Intel Developer Forum. What was once a relatively unknown concept is now being discussed in corporate board rooms.
We invite you to join our extraordinary group of visionaries in business, science, technology, design, and the arts, as our community explores this exciting topic. Your participation offers a world of powerful ideas, a unique networking opportunity, and access to an exclusive directory of your peers.”
