SIAI video series, 2007 updates

Our friends over at the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence (SIAI) have been busy. For those of you unfamiliar with the SIAI, they are,

a nonprofit research institute based in Palo Alto, California, with three major goals: furthering the nascent science of safe, beneficial advanced artificial intelligence (self-improving systems) through research and development, research fellowships, research grants, and science education; furthering the understanding of its implications to society through the AI Impact Initiative and annual Singularity Summit; and furthering education among students to foster scientific research.

They've recently released a video series from the Singularity Summit featuring presentations by such thinkers as Ray Kurzweil, Nick Bostrom, Douglas R. Hofstadter, Cory Doctorow and K. Eric Drexler.

Their Spring 2007 updates can be found here. You can find out more about the SIAI here.
