2009 Singularity Summit

"Artificial Intelligence is probably the most important technology in humanity's future. Now is the time to be looking closely at its benefits and risks", Peter Thiel, one of the founders of the Singularity Institute.

"In the coming decades, humanity will likely create a powerful artificial intelligence. SIAI exists to handle this urgent challenge, both the opportunity and the risk."

The singularity will occur when we create "smarter-than-human intelligence" (from here).

I don't doubt we'll create something awesome, not artificial human intelligence but an alternative, powerful cognition.
