Singularity University’s inaugural Global Summit is kicking off today in tech capital San Francisco and running through August 30th. The Singularity Hub team will be on the ground, covering some of the best speakers, and bringing you live Facebook interviews to give you a taste of the magic too.
SU’s three exponential conferences all have a unique industry focus—finance, medicine, and manufacturing.
But the focus of Global Summit is to go broad, showcase trends in emerging technologies, and explore how they’re converging within several industries.
Experts in deep learning such as Jeremy Howard and AI thought-leader Neil Jacobstein will have a fireside chat on the future of machine learning and AI. Authorities in education Esther Wojcicki and Leila Toplic will explore new moonshots in the education sector.
Alex Filippenko, a well-known professor of astronomy and physical sciences at University of California, Berkeley, will enlighten us on the frontiers of space exploration and share what we need to know about exoplanets.
Additional speakers at Global Summit will dive into subjects including:
- New business opportunities created by advances in robotics and AI.
- Ways AR/VR can enhance creativity and innovation.
- How nanotechnology will improve cancer treatment therapies.
- How to use minimal resources to start a movement.
- Why the maker movement matters.
