Summary

Singularity University — the new academic institution with the goal of preparing the next generation of leaders to address “humanity’s grand challenges” — today named the 40 students participating in the inaugural Graduate Studies Program (GSP). Hailing from 13 countries, and from a cross-range of academic and business backgrounds, the students of Singularity University truly represent the next generation of leaders and innovators to address the major issues facing our world. And, throughout the summer program, students will share insights and daily experiences using social media channels, such as WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Picasa.

The summer class is composed of 26 men and 14 women, ranging in age from 22 to 47 years old. The 13 nations represented are: USA, Canada, Israel, United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, India, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Czech Republic, and Russia.

Singularity University is modeled after the successful International Space University, founded at MIT in 1987, which has become one of the leading interdisciplinary, international and intercultural institutions for the study of space. The GSP is a nine-week graduate-level interdisciplinary curriculum designed to facilitate understanding, collaboration, and innovation across a broad range of carefully chosen scientific and technological disciplines whose developments are exponentially accelerating. SU summer program classes began June 29, 2009, based at NASA Ames Research Park on Moffett Field.
