Mountain View, California: Convergence08 conference. Hundreds of people are gathering here at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View “Bringing Life to Big Ideas”. The focus is on four core technologies and how they will change the world dramatically in the coming decades: Infotech, Cogtech, Nanotech, and Biotech.
I’m especially interested in hearing from Peter Norvig, Google researcher and the guy who – literally – wrote the textbook on Artificial Intelligence.
So far the organization of this conference is very impressive though it’s not clear how many are attending. The group keynote begins in about 20 minutes.
