Dear readers,

I hope you enjoy my recent Q + A with host Will Weisman — at Global Summit by Singularity University. This special annual event brings together industry + community leaders, thinkers, students, and futurists from around the world — to explore new developments and concepts for innovation.

I co-founded Singularity University in year 2008 with my colleague Peter Diamandis — a renowned author + entrepreneur — to establish an ongoing space for creative + critical thinking about tomorrow.

Today, we offer a wide range of educational + development programs for individuals, family, and enterprise — featuring both in-person and digital opportunities to learn, network, make, experiment, grow, and build.

As summer ends and we move into autumn, Singularity University has created a fresh collection of programs + experiences. There’s something for everyone. I welcome you to take a look!

Ray Kurzweil
