I have struggled to explain what Singularity University actually is whenever people have asked me what I’m doing this summer, and have always struggled to put it into words. Today the genius of SU finally coalesced within my mind into frameable language.
SU is about convergence. It is about converging technologies, accelerating technologies, for sure — but it is much bigger than that. The genius of SU is that it matches problems (through the group project, 10^9+) with solutions (through the core lectures); it networks those who have ideas but no money with those who have money but are looking for ideas; and it creates a bridge from future scenarios and vision to present realities and issues.
This is the most amazing group of people I have ever had the chance to meet or work with. Great things will come from this.
