(May 18, 2017)

"The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself."
XPrize Founder and Co-Founder of Singularity University Peter Diamandis

TORONTO, May 18, 2017 /CNW/ - The co-founder of Singularity University and the X-Prize foundation, Peter Diamandis, announced as the first Keynote for the inaugural SingularityU Canada Summit on October 11-12, 2017 at the Evergreen Brickworks, in Toronto, Ontario.

Named one of "The World's 50 Greatest Leaders" by Fortune Magazine, Diamandis is a leading engineer, physician, a serial entrepreneur, and the co- author of the best-selling books, Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think and BOLD: How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World.


"Canada is home to some of the best minds and most innovative organizations in the world. From artificial intelligence and bio-genetics to renewables, and fintech, Canadians are taking on the world's biggest challenges," said Diamandis. "I am incredibly excited to be part of bringing SingularityU to Canada and look forward to welcoming more Canadian alumni to the SingularityU community."

Harvesting resources from asteroids in outer space, extending the healthy human lifespan to 120 years, enabling people to travel huge distances in mere minutes - all of these ideas sound like science fiction but for Peter Diamandis they are modern day moonshots.

(HLI), Planetary Resources, Space Adventures, Zero-Gravity Corporation, Singularity University and the X-Prize foundation

About The SingularityU Canada Summit

SingularityU Canada Summit is the premier launch event of a new movement in Canada seeking to bring together the leading Canadian and International thought leaders to inspire Canadians to shape the Future of Canada and drive global impact. A forum for true debate and uncommon conversations about how technologies like artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and digital medicine will impact the way we live and work.

The inaugural SU Canada Summit will take place on October 11 12 at the Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto, Ontario and will move to different cities every year.

Building the Canadian incarnation of Singularity University was made possible when a grassroots movement of Canadian SU alumni brought together a visionary group of founding members including BMO, CIBC, CN,Deloitte, FairVentures, Goodmans LLP, Google, the Government of Ontario, RBC, Rogers Communications, Scotiabank, Suncor, and TD Bank Group. Together this initial group is on a mission to share SU's exponential mindset and bold thinking with Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

The group is working closely with leading edge innovation hubs, academic institutions, and NGOs across the country to create a pan-Canadian network of partners who wish to come together and discuss Canada's role in shaping our collective future http://singularityusummit.org/
