Be on the Winning Side of Disruption: SU Global Summit San Francisco


There’s never been a better opportunity to see the future first-hand. Join the most innovative minds in business and technology, along with Singularity University faculty and alumni at the first-ever SU Global Summit, August 28-30, in San Francisco.

The future is incredibly hard to predict, but not for the reasons we normally think. The truth is, not only are new technologies advancing quickly, but how they’re converging and influencing one another kicks the pace up another gear. The result? The future is approaching faster than we can imagine. This concept, and the opportunity to leverage accelerating technologies to solve real human challenges, will be the central themes explored over three days this August.

The Singularity University Global Summit, happening August 28-30 in San Francisco, is bringing the brightest minds together for a three-day conference to begin tackling the world’s biggest challenges and give participants a look at the future of technology and business. This will be the definitive place to meet innovators and understand what business, technology and government will look like in the next 10 years.

With world-renowned speakers delivering their unique perspective on topics like artificial intelligence, robotics, energy, nanotechnology and 3D printing, data and machine learning, finance and economics, networks and computing, medicine and neuroscience, bioengineering, bioinformatics, space, and security, as well as the Global Grand Challenge Awards highlighting the most impactful startups—SU Global Summit will cover the most critically important knowledge as we dive headfirst toward tomorrow.

Singularity University’s co-founder and a director of engineering at Google, Ray Kurzweil predicts that “by 2029, computers will have emotional intelligence and be convincing as people.” This may seem hard to believe, but it’s just one surprising outcome representing a staggering amount of opportunity in the coming years. The SU Global Summit will take a deep dive into seemingly far-off opportunities, reveal why they’re not as far away as they seem, and connect those who understand the importance of these converging technologies.
