What: Straight talk about our future of exponential technology, disruptive change, and Artificial Intelligence.

Who: Nikola Danaylov, Author, Speaker, Vegan, Futurist and Philosopher.

Creds: Nikola’s “Conversations with the Future” is a #1 International Bestseller. His Singularity.FM is the most popular podcast in the niche and reason why Danaylov has been called the “Larry King of the Singularity.”

His message: What if your car doesn’t need a driver anymore? What if we don’t need to age and die? What if machines get smarter than us? What if your toothbrush gets smarter than you? What happens to your business? What happens to you? Because no matter who you are or what you do, the future will always find you. Question is: Will you find the future?!…

Why book him: What if instead of fear of the future – you see opportunity, instead of an end – you see a beginning, instead of loss – you see profit, and instead of death – you see life? What if you and your organization get Future-primed? For many years Nikola Danaylov has been interviewing the future and motivating people all over the world to embrace rather than fear it. What if you start asking “What if?” before it’s too late?

Who will benefit: Those who would rather surf the tsunami of disruptive change rather than get drowned by it.

In 1998 Nikola moved to Canada where he completed an HBA in Political Science, Philosophy & Economics at the University of Toronto followed by an MA in Political Science at York University.

It was at YorkU that Nikola became deeply interested in the Technological Singularity and wrote “Hacking Destiny: Critical Security at the Intersection of Human and Machine Intelligence.”

In 2011 Nikola went to NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California and completed the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University.

Nikola has spoken at public events on topics ranging from technology, transhumanism and the technological singularity to new media, blogging, and podcasting.

Nikola’s Brief Story:

In 2009, Nikola Danaylov completed his master’s degree and entered the army of unemployed job seekers at the peak of the recession. “I stopped counting after I sent out 300 resumes – I got one interview which apparently didn’t go well because they never called me back,” Nikola remembers. “One of my applications went out to the first and only blog dedicated to the technological singularity at that time. They were looking to hire a staff writer and, given my education, past research and writing skills, I thought I made the best candidate you could get. I eagerly anticipated an email telling me how totally perfect I was for the job, but the email never came. So, after two weeks of waiting in vain, it slowly started to dawn on me that I wasn’t getting that job either. Then, a crazy thought occurred to me: maybe, just maybe, I didn’t need them. Perhaps there was some tiny chance I might be able to do it on my own. I could start my own Singularity website. I mean, how hard could it be?”

Ten years after its humble beginning, the Singularity.FM podcast has had over 6 million views on iTunes and YouTube and has been featured on international TV networks as well as on some of the biggest blogs in the world, such as BBC, ArteTV, MTV, Space, TV Japan, Channel NewsAsia, io9, The Telegraph, The Huffington Post, ZDNet, BoingBoing and others. Today, the Singularity Weblog is the biggest independent blog on technological singularity, transhumanism, exponential technology and the future of humanity. The Singularity.FM podcast is the first, most popular and widely recognized interview series in the niche. And according to Professor Roman Yampolskiy “Nikola has established himself as the ‘Larry King’ of the Singularity.”
