Singularity University Opening Ceremony for 2010 Summer Session
Ray Kurzweil presents opening remarks and the goal of Singularity University to create transcendent effects in the world. The tools of innovation, creativity, and disruptive change are now in everyone's hands, that is, the technology that creates transcendent events and effects, that change the world, are readily available. It took 400 years from invention for the printing press to affect a significant part of the population, the telephone took 50 years, the cell phone took 7 years, then internet social networks took only 3 years. The world can now be affected very quickly with very inexpensive tools.
