As the inaugural Graduate Studies Program of 2009 (GSP-09) is ending, we will be ready to quickly progress into new projects, and new phases at the Singularity University. (I wish I could have written “ready to take a month or two off”, but no, that is not going to be the case!) In the previous months, we have released videos, that illustrated our goals. Matt Rutherford, our Media Producer and his dedicated team, recorded countless hours of lectures, workshops, events, team meetings, interviews, and more.

One of the questions that we have asked since the beginning was, since much of the experience of the Graduate Studies Program is very difficult if not impossible to replicate elsewhere, how can we maximize our global impact? The material we have is priceless, and we want it to reach as many people as possible! There are millions of people who would be interested in taking advantage of our materials, and have the means, broadband internet connection, etc. But there are many, whose level of English understanding is not high enough to follow an advanced lecture on nanotechnology, or robotics, or personalized medicine.… read more
