Great illustration to explain the difference in culture and attitude except the one where Westerners walk right through a puddle and Easterners walk around it. In fact during the Emergency War in Malaya, the communists used to set traps around puddles as the British soldiers tend to walk around puddles.
Hi All, a mixed trip to Malaysia. Great to be back home, fantastic to connect with so many new inspiring network of friends. Sad to say farewell to my favourite and last surviving aunt. Enjoyed the discussions I had from the talks I gave at EduCamp and Rotary Subang on Singularity University and Exponential Technologies. Looking forward to doing an encore at Mind Valley tomorrow morning at 10 am before I leave KL next week, Details here:
Mindvalley @ 29th Floor Menara Uoa Bangsar, 5 Jalan Bangsar Utama 1, Taman Bangsar, 59000 Kuala Lumpur
*BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND*
If you had 1 billion dollars, what would you do to impact the lives of a billion people in 3 years?
Singularity University believes in the power of 10^9+. What’s that? The power of exponential impact- by utilizing disruptive and accelerating technologies to solve humanity’s hardest problems.
Last year, they brought together a class of 80 gamechangers already at the top of their field and challenged them to work together in 10 weeks to come up with interdisciplinary solutions like never before. FutureMed, security systems, education, film- you name it, they’ve got it.
One high performing individual that graduated from SU was our very own Dr. Clarence Tan and his mission is to give back what he’s been given.
As an ambassador for Singularity University and Adjunct Professor of Griffith University, he will be here to talk about Singularity University and the impact of Exponential Technologies to Industries and to host a discussion afterwards.
Prepare to be mind-blown. 😉
