HumanityHumanity+ is coming to Beijing! You won’t miss it if you are a fan of the Singularity.

In 2010, Humanity+ Vice Chair Dr. Ben Goertzel wrote an article for H+ Magazine titled “Will the Singularity Be Launched in China?“. In 2011 he relocated to Hong Kong, where he has been involved with a number of advanced technology projects, and has been seeking to build bridges between the communities of futurist thinkers and do-ers in the West and the Orient (with a focus on China specifically).  In late 2011 the Humanity+ @Hong Kong conference was a great success and a fun experience. Humanity+ Beijing is a natural step in this bridge-building effort.
