Tech Tidbits Daily Podcast for September 19, 2005

Today we have news of some California Bay Area events from Renee Blodgett, President of Blodgett Communications [blog]. 

Ray Kurzweil will be speaking about the topic "The Singularity" in reference to his new book "The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology", due to hit the streets on September 26:

The Singularity, almost an article of faith in techie circles, is the point at which machine intelligence outstrips human brainpower.

Ultimately, Kurzweil predicts, the predominant component of human intelligence will be non-biological, and more of our experiences will take place in virtual reality than in the physical world.

In this new world, there will be no clear distinction between human and machine, real reality and virtual reality.

The first event will be the SD Forum event in Palo Alto on Thursday, September 22, starting at 6 pm with a book signing following the event at 8:30 pm. It will be held at SAP America, Building D, 3410 Hillview Avenue in Palo Alto, CA 94304.

Then on Friday, September 23 in San Francisco starting at 7 pm, Kurzweil will be at the next LONG NOW event, which will be held at the Herbst Theater, in the Veterans Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue at McAllister in San Francisco.

Unfortunately, TechNewsRadio.com will not be able to attend either event but the speaking topic and the book do sound interesting.
