Singularity Seminar Feb 10

 

Our Managing Partner Shinji Sumida will be speaking on the topic of “Legal Strategies for the Singularity Era” on February 10 at the Business Research Institute from 2pm to 5pm.

Singularity (or “technological singularity”) has been described as:

 

“… a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed. Although neither utopian nor dystopian, this epoch will transform the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our lives, from our business models to the cycle of human life, including death itself.” – Ray Kurzweil

 

The era where self-developing artificial intelligence will surpass human understandability is said to be upon us from 2045. How shall we prepare ourselves and how may legal affairs be affected by this technological evolution?
