Public meeting will re-examine future of artificial intelligence
Toward this end, the Singularity Summit will bring together experts in computer science, nanotechnology and related fields, including:
-- MIT robotics Professor Rodney Brooks, co-founder and chief technology officer of iRobot, the Massachusetts firm that sells self-directed machines ranging from automated vacuum cleaners to mechanical scouts and pack mules for the military.
-- Peter Norvig, director of research at Google and author of "Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach," the foremost textbook in the field.
-- Nanotechnology investor Steve Jurvetson and Foresight Nanotech Institute co-founder Christine Peterson.
According to Emerson, it was Peterson, the nanotech maven, who put Thiel in touch with the Singularity Institute. Peterson, who holds regular salons for Silicon Valley thinkers, invited Thiel to dine with South Bay mathematician Eliezer Yudkowsky, who co-founded the Singularity Institute in 2000. Thiel and Yudkowsky hit it off, and soon the financier was helping support this AI ethics outfit.
