I do not know if you have heard of the Singularity, it is a book, concept, and university. It explores the moment that technology becomes conscious and rocks all of all humanity, more or less.
For more on that check out the links at the bottom of this post! The reason I am talking about The Singularity is a recent STEM activity.
I was fortunate to attend Singularity University Global Summit recently and it was amazing! I will have many future blog posts from this experience but a few highlights include:
Meeting incredible and diverse women in tech, seeing my field represented in many forms, interacting with the future first hand through roving robots, virtual reality, and stepping into a painting.
Meeting and listening to Silicon Valley pioneers, connecting with fellow bloggers, seeing first hand the solutions to societal challenges that tech, innovative thinking, and hard work can usher in, and knowing that We all have the potential to positively impact a billion people.
And I must say, the silent disco, food, and famous DJ were pretty fun too! I cannot imagine a more glamorous and brainy career.
I will expand on all of the above and more in future posts! I encourage you to check out Singularity and attend an event yourself!
