Learn how technology enables us to solve global challenges

At Singularity University, we believe that leveraging 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.


In addressing each of the 12 global grand challenges, we aim to ensure that basic needs are met for all people, the quality of life is improved, and that future risks are mitigated.


Each of the global grand challenges are interrelated and interdependent. As we solve for the water challenge, we also address the health challenge. As we make progress against the education challenge, so we also address the prosperity challenge.
