Thrilled to speak and inspire the youth of Malaysia tomorrow! Sold out crowd of 800!
Honored to be a keynote speaker next week at the London Business School Worldwide Alumni Celebration event in Singapore!
Great to see this area of telepresence robotics being developed for aged care! One of my pet project ideas with Yuri Valentini when I was at SU!

A project of another SU graduate that is saving lives, Dr. Miguel Luengo-Oroz is an antidisciplinary scientist working on crowdsourcing and data science for global challenges in international development and biomedical research. Currently, he is research fellow in Innovative Health at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid –founder of malariaspot.org – and the global research coordinator of United Nations Global Pulse – big data for development- . He is co-author of 25+ scientific publications – including the journal Science- on quantitative analysis and pattern recognition applied to multidisciplinary scientific research. He has a background in biomedical engineering (PhD), cognitive sciences (MSc), telecommunications engineering (MSc) and he is graduate from the Singularity University at NASA Ames.(TEDx Barcelona)
Check a real contender of the Tricorder X-Prize project, another company at NASA Ames Research Center with the involvement of a number of my Singularity University friends. It will bring the realization of personalized medicine tool and quantified health sooner than we think!
Great news from my alma mater at USC, one small sure step in the right direction. This together with the progress in space exploration, will mean potential human colonization witth space, as terraforming Mars for human colonization is already a possibility with the discovery of water on Mars.
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. 😉
