Wow! now it has stopped... the churning of my mind! I came here to write about this University, but thoughts kept brimming, and to save them from over-flow, i placed them here. If they make u laugh, awesome. If they make u think, that you think likewise too... then ping me back !
Singularity University is (directly from their website http://singularityu.org/about/):
"Singularity University, based on the NASA Ames campus in Silicon Valley, is an interdisciplinary university whose mission is to assemble, educate and inspire a cadre of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies (bio, nano, info, AI, etc.), and apply, focus and guide these tools to address humanity’s grand challenges."
Since this is a new start-up, I expect this to evolve to a place where you can go, with your thoughts and ideas, and evolve them into grand solutions for grand challenges. And, expect it to not only invite leaders, but to anyone who has the interest and thinking potential for it!
Just like, you don't find a problem in your code and someone else does, likewise, a fresh new-mind can learn and see things differently and find problems and solutions, compared to a conditioned mind, which is sunk deep into the topic.
