Have you ever dreamt of an idea will change the world? An idea, a technological innovation, a business, that will improve the lives of every person on earth? Or maybe like us, you’re still on the cusp of it. Maybe you want that little bit more inspiration.
Your opportunity is here. Dr Clarence Tan is coming to campus, and he wants to speak to YOU!
When: Monday 31st March 6pm – 8pm
Where: 14 – 132 (Sir Llew Edwards Building)
Dr Clarence Tan was selected to attend the prestigious Singularity University @ NASA Ames Research Centre in Silicon Valley, where he was able to turn an idea into the reality of using exponential technologies to impact 10 billion people positively. Tan was the team leader for a project in the field of security that is using crowd sourcing technologies to shine a light on corruption.
Clarence is visiting UQ to speak about his SU experience, the meetings with luminaries like Steve Wozniak, Chris Anderson etc and the various site visits including Google, Facebook, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, NASA, etc. But more importantly, Clarence will talk about the the most recent technological innovations, and how they can have an exponential impact on society.
Entries to Attend Singularity University have opened. With the prize of attending Singularity University’s (SU) Graduate Studies Program, SU holds competitions around the world to identify outstanding students and promote entrepreneurship that will positively impact regions around the world.
I am proud to iannounce the naugural Malaysia Global Impact Competition has been launched to send one Malaysian to the prestigious Singularity University’s Graduate Studies Program 2014 in NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, USA.
Thanks to financial sponsors, Alyah Abdullah and Ayub Ali, and Vishen Lakhiani and his awesome team at MindValley for organizing the competition.

Futurist predicts top 10 jobs, how students are prepared for these jobs?
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. 😉
