Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress Workshop
The Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress Workshop was Foresight’s second workshop in this year’s series of fast-paced interactive workshops. Invited participants and an excellent selection of accepted applicants met September 30 - October 2, 2016 in Palo Alto, California.
Artificial Intelligence For Scientific Progress is targeted at generating new insights, new projects, and new funding for the goal of applying advanced computer science to the challenges of atomic precision. Ben Goertzel as well as Feynman Prize Winners were amongst the attendees. The results, video and whitepaper, will go onto the website shortly to be accessed by the public.
Foresight Institute Breakthrough Technologies for Energy
Atomic Precision for Energy Generation, Transmission, and Use Reduction
This was a highly interactive and stimulating 2-1/2 day invitational meeting focused on long-term prospects for revolutionary advances in energy based on improved precision in our control of matter, and how to speed current research in that direction.

A thought leader on powerful, coming technologies, Christine Peterson, co-founder and past president of The Foresight Institute, writes, lectures, organizes conferences and briefs the media on nanotech, artificial intelligence, biotechnology and other technologies. An Advisory Board member of the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, California’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on Nanotechnology, Peterson also serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of NASA’s Nanotech Briefs. She co-authored, among other things, Unbounding The Future: The Nanotechnology Revolution, and her interest/work in new varieties of intellectual property has led to her being credited with creating the term “open source software”.
The Next Billion
October 13, 2016, San Francisco, California
Are you interested in the future of the connected world?
The Next Billion is a metaphor for the future of the internet—both the exponential growth in connectivity in emerging markets and the growth of next-level technology in mature markets.
This October, Quartz will bring together thought leaders, industry experts, and others in our community to discuss the expansion of the connected world and what it means for every industry that touches it.
In past years, we've held The Next Billion in London, New Delhi, New York, and Seattle. Join us as we host in San Francisco for the first time.
An archive lists earlier lectures and events, and includes a list of "Issues and Opportunities"—promotions and initiatives of Foresight Institute — from 1997 through 2004.
