Great to go back to San Francisco in August for our Singularity University’s Graduate Studies Program Reunion. So proud of my classmates, their projects and how far they’ve come. Here are some of the projects my classmates are working on (both SU companies and non-SU companies).
It’s so cool to have a group of friends who are working on improving the world using exponential technologies on an international scale!
Actually, this has made me curious. So I crunched some numbers. From my calculations, 62% of the 79 people in my class at Singularity are full-time entrepreneurs in a venture they founded or co-founded, and 65% of the 79 people are either full-time or part-time entrepreneurs as a founder or co-founder. The part-time entrepreneurs are also studying.
To my knowledge, 19 of my 79 classmates are still working on their SU projects they presented onstage at our final pitch session.
Alberto and I gave a speech about Aipoly at TEDxMelbourne, where we showcased Aipoly Vision being used via glasses. Aipoly has now been downloaded 120,000 times.
During our summer working out of the Engineers Australia Victoria office, we had some special visitors. Minister Merlino, the Deputy Premier and Education Minister was our first visitor, on 16 December 2015.
Following that, The Hon. Linda Dessau, the Governor of Victoria paid us a visit in our final week at those offices. We showcased all our robotic and computer vision projects.
In June, the Prime Minister’s office accepted Engineers Australia’s invitation to visit our offices and came to see our technology.
We followed that up by visiting the Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation & Trade, Minister Phil Dalidakis MP in late June 2016, who said he was eager to support our robots.
I spent the summer working out of the Engineers Australia Victoria office with 20 university students. As a result they put me on the front cover of their Create magazine.
And here is the rest of the article. The full article is also available on Facebook.
