The Complete 2011 Singularity Summit Video Collection

The 2011 Singularity Summit was a blast!

I enjoyed every single second of it.

According to Ray Kurzweil ”The Singularity Summit is the premier conference on the Singularity. As we get closer to the Singularity, each year’s conference is better than the last.”

As it is often the case – Ray was right! If you are interested in the technological singularity and the future of humanity, then, the Singularity Summit is a must attend event.

Second best case is what I have done the previous years before 2011 i.e. watch all the summit videos of the amazing presentations that famous guest speakers make at the conference.

So, even though I was fortunate enough to attend the 2011 Singularity Summit in person (can you spot the irregularly shaped bold head in the audience?!), I thought I’d post all the videos for the benefit of my less fortunate or busier friends.

Enjoy!
