Looking at how innovation, development and improvements technology are affecting us as a humans and world we live in. Thinking about how we connect, bridge and reach out to each other from the furthest corners of our vast world. How it’s affecting how we learn, work and grow. This, and far more will be discussed here, including even what changes we should make towards embracing the uncertain, but hopefully bright future ahead.

Our lives, so increasingly intertwined between our hand-crafted virtual reality, and the surrounding, all encompassing physical world, known to us since the dawn of humanity as the ‘real world’. Are our own, and the perception of future human generation’s notion of what is reality becoming increasingly broadened, or is it being skewered and sullied by machine and code? How will humans, communities and companies learn to adapt, stay atop and thrive during the new age of machine’s and AI’s that exponentially grow in ability, knowledge and learning? What should we do, and what changes should occur to make sure future students adapt their studies and learning to the new, uncertain and ever-hectic world? What should they be learning to keep up with the constantly shifting status-quo?

These and far more questions remained previously unanswered by most, yet that is exactly what compels us to study, ponder upon and understand the new, mysterious horizon that lays before us.

“Singularity? It’s a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed.”
