The Summit is organized to help to understand the new technologies and to use them to improve our own country, in this case Italy. The SingularityU Italy Summit, infact, is just a little portion of the SingularityU International Summit, meetings that take place in the whole world to move closer every single country to the most recent technological innovations.
The SingularityU Italy Summit
In October it will be the second time that the Summit will take place in Italy, specifically in Milan. The meeting will be two days long and it is focused to reunite all the elements of the italian technological community. Two days where they could talk about innovation, evolution and progress.

Everyone can partecipate at the summit, especially if you are a leader in a society or in an organization, if you are an innovator with big dreams, if you would like to improve the world and the people’s life, if you work with children and teenagers, generations that will shape the future or just if you are curios to know what the future holds.
The Singularity University
Like we said there are Singularity’s Summit everywhere in the world, but the idea was born in the NASA Research Park, in the Silicon Valley, in the 2008, by Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis. The Singularity University soon became a global community that has the purpose to create a better future for everyone, using to reach it the best technologies: artificial intelligence, robotic and digital biology. The Singularity’s partners are many and relevant, like Google and UNICEF.
What are the main purposes of the SingularityU Summit
Like we said the mondial community that was born has noble purposes. Between the main points there is obviusly the topic of how the technology is changing the world, under a point of view energetic, ethic, etc. The technology, furthermore, has a strong impact on the people, changing their way to live and work. Finally, the technology is changing even the business’ world, thanks to the artificial intelligence, the blockchain, the machine learning, etc.
