Kurzweil and other VIP persons from Artificial Intelligence (they prefer to call it Artificial General Intelligence), Transhumanism and other fields are meeting in NY in a month. Sounds interesting?

It would be during events called "Night of scientists"/"Cafe Scientifique". http://www.cafescientifique.org/
