Advancing technology for the long-term benefit of life.

Join our mailing list


Foresight Institute advances crucial science and technology for the long-term flourishing of life. We believe that, in addition to directly addressing existential risks, one relatively neglected area for impact is to directly support differential technology development in areas that make great futures more likely. We focus on three working groups to advance:

  1. Molecular Machines for atomically precise control of matter
  2. Biotech & Health Extension to reverse aging and improve cognition
  3. Computer Science to secure decentralized human AI cooperation
  4. Existential Hope to catalyze beautiful futures
