“We are an education to make radical changes, the antithesis of a normal university”

From August 17 to 20, the third edition of the Singularity Digital Summit will take place. The event created by Singularity University, a Silicon Valley institution that will have the ‘Convergence’ as its main axis and will have the participation of 25 speakers, covering topics such as the future of food and industries 4.0. Claudia Aparicio, the director of Singularity U. Colombia tells details of the event proposal.

Who is it for?
Our main audience are decision makers who can be founders of companies, 60% of those who attend have that profile and the rest are in charge of areas of innovation or strategy, and entrepreneurs.

How is Singularity different from other universities?
In the aim, educate leaders in exponential technologies as the best vehicle to solve the great challenges of humanity, such as the problem of global warming, education, health; a traditional university is conceived as a knowledge tank for employability. In the method, we are the antithesis of a normal university, we believe that people in a short time could receive an education to make radical changes.

What are exponential technologies?
They are those that double their processing capacity between 18 and 24 months; robotics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, gene editing. If a solution to solve a great challenge is not accompanied by this technology, it is not viable.

What are the requirements to study at Singularity?
Demonstrate the ability to lead a great transformation, what the university seeks is to promote diversity, some (students) are pure geeks, others are science people, others understand the great challenges very well.

What kind of projects were born from Singularity?
The 0-gravity 3D printer in space, the company that delivers medical devices via drones; projects with a super big ambition, we tell people, “don’t do a project that has an exponential technology that doesn’t seek to solve a problem of at least 10 million people.”
