What Is Singularity University ?
Singularity University is a global community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. SU is committed to finding solutions to Global Grand Challenges while inspiring leaders to leverage Exponential Technologies to positively impact billions of people. To do this, SU must grow beyond its existing programs and current geographic footprint.
“Technological change is exponential, contrary to the common-sense ‘intuitive linear’ view. So we won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century—it will be more like 20,000 years of progress.”
—Ray Kurzweil Co-founder, Singularity University
