Title: Presentation of the Singularity University

Abstract: The Singularity University (SU) is an interdisciplinary
university whose mission is to assemble, educate and inspire a cadre
of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of
exponentially advancing technologies in order to address humanity’s
grand challenges. With the support of a broad range of leaders in
academia, business and government, SU hopes to stimulate
groundbreaking, disruptive thinking and solutions aimed at solving
some of the planet’s most pressing challenges. SU is based at the NASA
Ames campus in Silicon Valley and offers two main types of programs:
an annual 9-week Graduate Studies Program as well as 3- and 10-day
Executive Programs throughout the year.

Teleplace is one of the best 3D applications for telework, online
meetings, group collaboration, and e-learning in a virtual 3D
environment (v-learning). It is a powerful telepresence environment
where multiple participants can stream their webcam video to
interactive 3D online meeting areas and workspaces. The virtual 3D
space permits effectively organizing the work areas and creates the
impression of "being there", which is fundamental for effective remote
collaboration. One of the main features of Teleplace is its ability to
immediately import Office documents from the desktop for presentations
and collaborative editing.

The talk is sponsored by Teleplace and Italsat.

There are a few seats available for the online interactive event,
please contact me by email if you wish to attend, or request to join
the teleXLR8 Facebook group. For those who cannot attend, the talk
will be posted to telexlr8.blip.tv on May 12.
