Kulturhuset, Sergels Torg 3, Stockholm
What does the Singularity mean, and how close is it? What will happen when the machines become (a lot) smarter than us humans? Is our only chance to keep up with the computers to upgrade ourselves? And about life in the cloud - the wonderful future when we can upload our consciousnesses.
