Why Singularity University?
 
According to Ray Kurzweil, technology is following an exponential growth.
However, throughout this time, we built a gap between people and computers. For years, computers were developed from a very strong function point of view.
Now, we are on the knee of curve from this exponential growth and humanity pleads for new ways to use technology in order to meet the need of millions of people and get an anthropocentric point of view for new technological products.
 
I would like to study at Singularity University to learn how technology can help humanity and how humanity can guide technology.
 
I have some projects that can improve human development and I would like to be able to develop them.
I'm near there, I just need your help now.
