Full video coverage, ASIM 2010 Conference, Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds

ASIM 2010

About 30 persons attended the ASIM 2010 Conference, Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds, satellite to the Singularity Summit 2010, San Francisco, August 16-17th. Besides the participants in San Francisco, about 25 remote participants attended online in Teleplace.

The videos of ASIM 2010 talks and discussions have been posted to blip.tv, see:

Some talks appear on more than one video, and videos recorded by different participants have different quality settings. Thanks to Jonas Bluth, Phillip Galinsky and Antoine Van de Ven for recording the videos.

ASIM 2010 Conference, Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds, Day 2

ASIM 2010

About 20 persons attended the second day of the ASIM 2010 Conference, Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds, satellite to the Singularity Summit 2010, San Francisco, August 17th. About 20 attended online in Teleplace. The first day featured 3 talks followed by lively discussions:

  • Fundamental Issues – Resolution & Scale, “Me” Programs, by Randal A. Koene
  • Actionable Approaches – ASIM Now, by Peter Passaro (talk given via Teleplace)
  • ASIM in Context – Ongoing Advances in neuroprosthetics, AGI, Cyber-augmentation, embodiment, VR, etc., by Monica Anderson

ASIM 2010

Remote participants in Teleplace were able to follow the talks via interactive video streaming, ask questions to the speakers, and contribute to the discussion. Two speakers (Peter Passaro on Day 2 and Ken Hayworth on Day 1) gave their talks via Teleplace. After attending both days of the conference remotely in Teleplace, I am very happy with the performance of the Teleplace system as a means to open up conferences to a global remote audience in “mixed reality”, with crisp video and audio (after properly setting up the microphones) and deep interactivity for all participants. I have participated in ASIM 2010 from the middle of nowhere in Central Europe, with a 3G phone link to the Internet and a very weak signal (in other words, my current Internet connection is VERY slow). Even with this poor connection, I have been able to participate in ASIM 2010 without any problem. There are, of course, special problems to deal with in mixed reality events. For example, in the first half of Day 2 remote participants could not hear well the on-site participants far from the microphone. In future events, we will use cordless microphones to give to on-site participants when they want to say something. In this case, the problem was solved by asking on-site participants to go to the microphone to comment and ask questions. Mixed reality via the professional and social collaboration platform Teleplace permits merging on-site and remote participants in one virtual group, and it is the best way to open up a conference to remote participants that I have seen. The 2-way video and audio link enables each participant, on-site or remote, to be seen and heard by all other participants, on-site or remote.

ASIM 2010

About 30 persons attended the first day of the ASIM 2010 Conference, Advancing Substrate-Independent Minds, satellite to the Singularity Summit 2010, San Francisco, August 16th.

Note: I (Giulio Prisco) have attended ASIM 2010 via Teleplace from the middle of nowhere in Central Europe, with a 3G phone link to the Internet and a very weak signal (in other words, my current Internet connection is VERY slow). Even with this poor connection, I am able to participate in Teleplace sessions without any problem, but I am not able to record high quality video. I managed to produce the first video with some tricks, and I wish to thank Phillip Galinsky for recording the second video. If you will participate in the Day 2 sessions, please consider recording a video. The built-in video recording feature of Teleplace is very easy to use.
