“Discover what being exponential means to you” is the philosophy behind Singularity University, the brainchild of X Prize founder Peter Diamandis and famous inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil. At Singularity grad and post-grad students—some of the smartest in the world—join together with the stated goal to use their intellect and ingenuity to create a business that will impact a billion people within ten years. THE UNIVERSITY is a behind-the-scenes look at a think tank dedicated to using exponential technology to change the world and the young men and women who are determined to do it. Five years in the making, this inspiring film provides us with hope that our capabilities will be able to work for us and help humanity live long and prosper. From self-driving cars, to printing tools in space, to being able to remotely deliver aid to those in need, THE UNIVERSITY is not only a glimpse at who will change the world, but also an in-depth look into our future and where we’re headed as a people and planet. —T.W.
