2013 Team Project Videos

The participants of the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University are challenged with the task of positively impacting the lives of a billion people within 10 years. The culmination of the 10-week program is an event held at the Computer History Museum in which the proposals are showcased to a standing-room only crowd. This year, the 80 innovative participants of the GSP13 class produced 17 team projects (and one individual project) employing accelerating technologies to address global grand challenges.

Singularity University is proud to present the following collection of team project videos from the 2013 class of GSP:
