Annual Summit
Singularity University
2016

Singularity University is an institution founded by some dauntingly intelligent ex-Nasa ex-Google people who share the goal of solving the greatest challenges faced by humanity.

Each year they host a summit where brain-boxes discuss the future in fields as wide ranging as Health, Mobility, Space, Robotics, Energy etc.

For their 2016 edition, we posed some scenarios that would whet the appetite of Amsterdam’s geeks, and lure them into the room.
