LIGHTHOUSE FOR INNOVATORS & ENTREPRENEURS

The Future of Human Intelligence and Computer Science

2012/09/06 | By IMPACT Japan

There is a prevailing opinion in the world of computer science that sooner or later we will reach a technological singularity, i.e. a point in time when computers’ abilities surpass human intelligence.

This conference will gather together futurologists, scientific minds from the pioneering days of computers, researchers in the field of computer science, shogi players who have played against computers, as well as philosophers and anthropologists in order to discuss, via the issue of the singularity, the meaning of humanity’s “tacit knowledge” and “embodied knowledge” and the coevolution of man and machine.
