SNiC Conference: SingularIT


Location: Philharmonie Haarlem, Lange Begijnestraat 11, 2011 HH Haarlem

This activity is not organised by Cover.

SingularIT is the 12th conference organised by the Stichting Nationaal Informatica Congres (Foundation National Computing Science Congress).

SingularIT takes a look at the future of technology. We aim to educate the audience about how technology and artificial intelligence will shape society, education and healthcare.
Our speakers range from scientists, entrepeneurs, activists and many more. Each of them will give a talk about how their field will be affected by technology that is smarter than humanity, be it in a positive or negative way.
There are two keynotes speakers, and in between of these are three parallel tracks of three sessions. You will be able to choose whichever talk you find the most appealing in each session.

For tickets for the SNiC, please send a mail to or ask someone from the board in person!
