Singularity Institute Africa
Welcome to the Singularity Institute Africa
WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to elevate public discourse in Africa and the internet about the possible futures which face humanity .
The Singularity Institute Africa is a research institute which seeks to increase public understand of progress, social engineering, advanced persuasive technology, and the future of civilization from a techno-progressive perspective. We have particular interest in the history, present and future of swarm, synthetic and collective intelligence.
The founder and owner of Singularity Institute Africa is Dr Kwame Amuah, who also is the director and owner of OSR holdings.
Kwame Amuah serves as Non-Executive Director of Eastland Medical Systems South Africa Pty Ltd. Dr. Amuah has wide experience in business and international affairs. He was special advisor to the Minister for Science and Technology and represented the Govt. of South Africa on the United Nations sponsored conferences and served on the United Nations technical and scientific committee. Dr. Amuah is the Son In Law of Mr. Nelson Mandela.
At the singularity institute, In addition to writing articles and publications which will help increase public awareness of big picture issues, we are running some grand experiments in how people can work together. If you join us early, you will learn what we learn from these experiments and improve your competence in managing teams. Available roles are that of the C-level officers, Operations Officers, Project managers, Futurists, Social Engineers, Editorial Assistants and brain stormers (Ideators).
Patterns of Progress
The Singularity Institute is in the midst of creating a reference book called patterns of progress which will be preserved and revised annually for future civilizations. You can become one of our authors and write your name in history itself.
Embedded within the Singularity Institute Africa is a futurist professional society. This is a new association in which Futurists can collaboratively improve their skills, build their portfolios, share ideas and network with others who are in the profession.
The manner in which we will fulfill our mission is by writing essays, articles and other publications using swarm writing methods and processes. We will then strategically spread these publications across the internet in a way that maximizes social sharing. We will also research and reserve more comprehensive publications for our members.
