I will be giving a presentation at Transvision2010, which takes place next weekend. The talk will be about how we should consider novel computing substrates on which to develop AI and ASIM (advanced substrate independent minds) technologies, rather than relying on conventional silicon processors. My main example will be that of developing learning applications on Quantum Computing processors (not entirely unpredictable!), but the method is generalisable to other technologies such as GPUs, biologically based computer architectures, etc…
The conference is physically located in Italy, but I unfortunately cannot make in in person, as I will be attending another workshop. I will therefore be giving the talk remotely via the teleconferencing software Teleplace.
Anyway, here is some information about the talk, kindly posted by Giulio Prisco:

Can disruptive technologies help us achieve uploading?
