From today's Financial Times:

Google and Nasa are throwing their weight behind a new school for futurists in Silicon Valley to prepare scientists for an era when machines become cleverer than people.

The new institution, known as “Singularity University”, is to be headed by Ray Kurzweil.

Google and Nasa’s backing demonstrates the growing mainstream acceptance of Mr Kurzweil’s views, which include a claim that before the middle of this century artificial intelligence will outstrip human beings, ushering in a new era of civilisation.

I dug into this a little... not sure but it sounds like they are only taking fresh new graduates with doctorates, etc.

I would jump to get a admissions form to this school.

I'm actually planning my next move... I might possibly be sending out resumes. The demand for Ai people has just soared recently. I really miss working on a team.
