Advancing beneficial technology

Foresight Institute is a leading non-profit researching and fostering technologies of fundamental importance for the human future, focusing on molecular machine nanotechnology, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence.

If we push in the right directions — learning, teaching, arguing, shifting directions, and pushing further — then we may yet steer the technology race toward a future with room enough for our dreams.
