Singularity University is a unique interdisciplinary, international
and intercultural experience which challenges students to use
transformative, exponential technologies to address grand
challenges. SU educates and inspires students to discover and
design sustainable organizations to positively impact humanity.
Located on the campus of NASA Research Park in Silicon
Valley, one of the world`s great epicenters of innovation,
Singularity University offers a 10-week graduate studies
programs as well as shorter executive and specialized
programs. These are designed to bring the unique and
stimulating environment of SU to organizations outside
of Silicon Valley.
Disruption is Important
The urgency in the mission of Singularity University comes
from the potential of the accelerating changes in felds such
as biotechnology and nanotechnology to fundamentally disrupt
humanity if left unguided, as well as their potential to solve our
biggest problems. The global economy is accelerating —
it used to take 20 years to create a billion dollar market
or product. Today that is happening in months.
The Global Summit Overview
Singularity University`s Global Summits are based on
showcasing the opportunities and disruptive infuences of
exponentially growing technologies and their impact on the
world over a 2 day period. SU Global Summits provide a
multidisciplinary approach for understanding the core concepts
and trends for these technologies and how entrepreneurs are
transforming companies, industries, and societies to solve
global challenges. Global Summit presentations are based
on the felds where exponentially growing technologies are
expected to have tremendous impact.

Goals
The Global Summits will be held every year in key global
cities. Each Summit will bring the best of the SU classroom:
showcasing what has changed in the world of exponential
technology and what startups have emerged from SU Labs
over the last 12 months. By organizing Summits in important
global centers of industry and governance, Singularity
University will spark a public discourse on the role of
technology in the future. SU will convene thought leaders
and breakthrough companies to explore exponential
technologies and their impact on generating further
breakthroughs.

Silicon Valley Entrepreneurship
Explanation of how Silicon Valley has spawned innovative and
cutting edge startups and disruptive technologies over the past
few decades. Companies like Google, Facebook and Apple
are leading the online and computer markets and continue to
lead the way for applying innovation and creative thinking into
the mainstream market. It will cover Silicon Valley's culture
and how to start a company based on the lessons learned
from the huge business successes emanating from Silicon
Valley — giving guidelines and rules for success and failure.

Breakthroughs in ArtiñciaI InteIIigence
& Robotics
Explore how artifcial intelligence and robotics is advancing
exponentially as increasing computing power and connection
speeds allow smart machines to be mobile and more intelligent.
From robotic surgery, autonomous vehicles, personal robot
assistants, to revolutionary biotech automation, this section will
discuss the major developments in robotics. It will include the
major opportunities and implications that robotics have
for various industries and how new breakthroughs are
expected to transform various aspects of the economy
over the coming years.
21st Century Biotechnology
Biotechnology is an exploding feld and this session will
talk about how since the completion of the human genome
project in 2001, genetics has been transformed into a digital
information technology: becoming faster, easier, and cheaper
to do year over year. These advances are expected to
accelerate for decades to come, and to deliver a sustained
wave of bio-based innovations to medicine, agriculture, energy,
and more, with potentially world-changing ramifcations. This
session will review the advances and shifting dynamics in
the biotech space today that involve genomic technologies,
synthetic biology, systems biology, and personalized medicine.
The Future of Security
Explore the current and future effects of security. Thus far,
criminals have proven themselves much more adaptive than
law enforcement in the global battle against technology crime
This session will address the criminal applications of robotics,
virtual worlds, nanotechnology, ubiquitous computing, artifcial
intelligence, cloud computing, bio-hacking, social data and
location-based crime.
The Future of Medicine and Healthcare
Comprehensive overview of what is in the lab today and what
is coming to market in the next 2 to 10 years. The presentation
will concentrate on breakthrough developments ranging from
3D printing to organ regeneration, from point-of-care lab-on-a-
chip diagnostics to large-scale bioinformatics; from synthetic
biology to new gene based therapies. All of these and more
are discussed in the context of current explosions of digital
information and distributed healthcare.
Accelerating Societal and Economic Disruption
Presentation about how the global economy is
accelerating — it used to take 20 years to create a billion
dollar market or product. Today that is happening in months.
Internet, mobile and e-commerce technologies are combining
to radically disrupt the very future of commerce. In a world
of shortened product cycles, how do legacy enterprises and
governance structures cope when technology is accelerating
away from us? This presentation will cover some of these
issues and suggest organizational mechanisms to cope with
these disruptions.
