It was a busy week for our team as we presented at not one, not two, but THREE different events!

First up was the Deep Tech Summit on Tuesday, September 18, organized by SGInnovate as part of the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) 2018. Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNET and Six Kin’s Scientific Advisor, was featured on the "AI and Our Autonomous World" panel. Many attendees commented that this was the most entertaining panel of the day, as it included a spirited debate on the capabilities and humanitarian values of AI.

Then on Wednesday, September 19, Dr. Goertzel delivered a keynote: "Achieving Sustainability via a Superintelligent, Democratically Governed Global Brain" at EMPIRICON, another sub-conference under SWITCH organized by Tabula Rasa.
