A Video About Singularity University

I would absolutely love to attend Singularity University! Singularity University is a project started by Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis. Ray Kurzweil is a noted futurist that I have mentioned as one of my three biggest influences and Peter Diamandis is a businessman who has created a number of events to push forward the boundaries of technology. For example he created the X-Prize, which was won a few years ago by Scaled Composites.

I found this recent video where they talk about some of the topics at Singularity University. The university has a 10 week program for $25,000 but it’s pretty exclusive so here is my question: Why the heck can’t we have a lot more of these kind of brainstorming sessions? Perhaps we will. The TED conference is also kind of exclusive and yet there are now TEDx conferences around the world.

Anyone want to do a Singularity Universityx?

Here’s the video.
