About SingularityU Canada
Preparing you to find and seize exponential opportunities
SingularityU Canada is committed to inspiring and enabling more Canadians to think BIG, take risks, and drive global impact. We are a not-for-profit, grassroots movement launched by a group of passionate individuals and forward-thinking Canadian organizations. SingularityU Canada is an uncommon partnership across communities, governments, and sectors. We are united by a shared desire to have strategic conversations about our collective future and ensure that Canada plays a global role in shaping the way we all live and work.
Singularity University (“SU”) is a global learning and innovation community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges and build a better future for all.
SU’s collaborative platform empowers individuals and organizations across the globe to learn, connect, and innovate breakthrough solutions using accelerating technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and digital biology. SU offers educational programs, courses, and summits; enterprise strategy, leadership, and innovation programs; programs to support and scale startups and promote social impact; and online news and content. The SU community includes entrepreneurs, corporations, global nonprofits, governments, investors, and academic institutions in more than 127 countries. With over 5,000 impact initiatives, the community is driving positive change in the areas of health, environment, security, education, energy, food, prosperity, water, space, disaster resilience, shelter, and governance.
We’re at an intersection between capability and opportunity. Countless technologies are converging and transforming the way we live and work – yet our organizations, policies, and frameworks remain decades behind.
Canadian innovators and entrepreneurs are moving in the right direction. We’re building incredible companies and massive government investments are being deployed to develop skills and ecosystems. Together, we can shift our focus to creating the future with a shared mindset that helps us imagine and confront the uncertain and unknown.
The world needs more Canada and Canada is poised to lead – join us on this journey.
Exponential technologies are the key to unlocking global solutions. They transform the way we live, rapidly accelerate, disrupt major industries, and create new possibilities for humanity. Their effects are being felt today but the next wave of exponential development and advancements will be even more dramatic and pervasive. We believe that the solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges lie at the intersection of these exponential technologies.
Exponential technologies include artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality (AR, VR), data science, digital biology and biotech, medicine, nanotech and digital fabrication, networks and computing systems, robotics, and robocars.
These rich and diverse technologies are constantly mutating and evolving to take us in new directions with infinite potential.
Global Grand Challenges
There are twelve global grand challenges (GGCs) that are interrelated and interdependent.
Environment • Energy • Food • Shelter • Space • Water • Disaster Resilience • Governance • Health • Learning • Prosperity • Security
Based on the foundations set by SU, at SingularityU Canada we believe that the convergence of exponential technologies will set us on the path to solve our global grand challenges and shift from an era of scarcity to abundance.
