Why would we choose a 2011 article to share on our school homepage in 2016?
The Singularity principle is a notion that has been gaining ground—FAST. It all began in 1965, slowly at first, and now seems to have reached the point where it is no longer a supposition. It has rather become an almost factual state. There is a Singularity University. It is a prestigious institution which collaborates with the most impressive partners and sponsors and recruits the leading “brains” of the planet. What is the Singularity University? The world’s most selective Think and DO Tank. Details from their website:
Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity's grand challenges.
"Singularity University is an opportunity to bring people from every conceivable walk of life with people that share a common aspiration that is to do better, to be better, and to make a positive impact on people's lives."

Grossman’s 2011 article on the Singularity Principle sheds the light on this state-of-the-art phenomenon which will redefine aptitude, competence, intelligence, competitiveness, and of course EXCELLENCE. Please share your thoughts with us. This is a topic that we, as partners in education, must reflect on and seriously prepare for.
We look forward to reading your comments and reflections.
