Mission

Foresight Institute supports the beneficial development of high-impact technology to make great futures more likely. We focus on science and technology that is too early-stage or interdisciplinary for legacy institutions to support. 

For instance:

  1. Molecular Machines to better control matter
  2. Biotech to reverse aging 
  3. Computer Science to secure human AI cooperation
  4. Neurotech to support human flourishing
  5. Spacetech to further exploration

HOPE DROP #3

Chiara Marletto, physicist & author, Oxford University & Julie Berger Lindh, artist.

"Imagine a world where humanity has transitioned into a society where everyone is able to think freely and creatively, and not be worried about survival."

This NFT is inspired by Chiara's vision of a future in which there's no need to worry about day-to-day problems that have to do with survival, like being hungry or trying to pay rent. In this future, we could achieve an ideal situation: Time to think freely, to be creative, and to consider various problems.

Visit the Existential Hope website to find a podcast interview with Chiara, the Gitcoin bounty, the full NFT, and more about our vision.
