The Singularity South Africa Summit will return physical format this year, following a hiatus due to COVID-19.

It will take place on October 21 and 22 in Johannesburg, in conjunction with Old Mutual and over 1,500 delegates are expected.

It is expected to be the first local event with a dedicated metaverse track. People from all over the world will be able to view the summit's main stage and plenary sessions in immersive 3D via the Africarare metaverse.

Now in its sixth year, the Singularity Summit will cover a wide range of topics, including energy, food, leadership, medicine, robotics, technology, the future of work, virtual reality, and water.

“As Old Mutual advances its digital transformation and prepares for the launch of a digital bank, the upcoming two-day SingularityU summit, featuring top experts in AI (artificial intelligence), technology, science, and futurism, offers a chance to glean invaluable insights from those shaping the future of tech and society," said Celiwe Ross, director: group strategy, sustainability, people and public Affairs at Old Mutual.

Mic Mann, co-CEO of SingularityU South Africa, said: “Our commitment is stronger than ever to empower visionaries and leaders with the insights needed to harness exponential technologies for the greater good of Africa and the world.”
