Introduction to Exponential

Wednesday 10:40am - 11:10am, NZTech (Axios Plenary Room)

"Take top thinkers from Silicon Valley and science, mix them with scientists, innovators and philanthro-capitalists, and you've got the Singularity University – on a mission to seek technological solutions to the world's great challenges”, according to a 2012 article from The Guardian.

The Singularity University, based in Silicon Valley, calls itself a benefit corporation that provides educational programs, innovative partnerships and a startup accelerator to help individuals, businesses, institutions, investors, NGOs and governments understand cutting-edge technologies, and how to utilize these technologies to positively impact billions of people.

Kaila Colbin will give an Introduction to Singularity University's Exponential Technologies research, and an update on the planned Singularity University Summit in NZ later this year.
