Transhumanism: An Exponential Runway
“Meat is messy.” That was one of the first things I heard as I arrived at the 2009 Singularity Summit in New York City. The speaker on the stage was Anna Salamon, a researcher at the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and she was addressing a crowd of eight hundred or so (mostly men) on the subject of “Shaping the Intelligence Explosion.”
Where Inspiration Meets Collaboration
Every so often I come across a line in a book or an article that hits me so deeply I never forget it. It happened a few years ago while reading From Counterculture to Cyberculture by Stanford University scholar Fred Turner.
