About the Project
Exponential technology is changing the world and there's only one university in the world devoted to teaching students how to harness it: Singularity University (SU).
The new feature documentary, The University, tells the story of the students, the faculty, and how Singularity University teaches students to confront the crucial issues affecting the future of our species - and create startups to address these topics.
We follow the students as they are given a fearsome challenge: create companies that will impact a billion people within ten years. It's a monumental challenge, pushing the students to create something bolder than just the next social networking app.
The film features Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Shimon Peres, Ashton Kutcher, Will.i.Am, Michio Kaku, and others.
