> Our latest salon video on institutions, civilizations and the future, featuring Dr. Mark Lutter and Mwiya Musokotwane and Allison Duettmann on Innovative Governance, Moving from Theory to Practice with New Cities.
We cannot thank all Vision Weekend participants enough. It’s humbling to be part of a community that takes prototyping better futures seriously and cares about action rather than signaling. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Our deepest gratitude to the amazing humans who contributed to this weekend of building grand visions for the future.
Videos of our panels coming soon!
How are the future cities going to look like? Are they going to be sovereign states? Will people have decentralized governments? What is the future of law like?
We are very excited to announce that our founder Christine Peterson will be speaking at Future Cities and Societies: Governance, Law, Blockchain on the 14th of December!
Register for December 14 here.
As a bonus, there will also be a free event regarding agricultural and infrastructural technology on the 13th, as well! Free Registration for Dec 13 here.
We spent an evening with discussing what it means to create a new city from scratch, to create a new legal system from scratch, and how combining the two can help alleviate global poverty, accelerate technological innovation, and create the conditions for human flourishing.

Topics we have discussed to date (all salon videos available in this YouTube playlist):
Andres Ochoa Interview at Singularity University
Andres Ochoa, Fellow in Artificial Intelligence for Life Extension
Andres develops and supports technologies and business that use biotechnology to create global impact. His current work as Chief Technology Officer at OneSkin Technologies is to connect the data discovery in genomics to the laboratory experimentation, helping to transform data obtained using Machine Learning to valuable aging molecular markers to fight aging.
This year, Andres focused on developing algorithms to:
1) Quantify aging using Real-Time-PCR data and a selected group of biomarkers OneSkin Technologies is standardizing.
“The idea is to be able to offer to our clients a tool to evaluate their skin health using a specific panel of biomarkers and them allow them to follow the changes on these biomarkers when they use different interventions on their skin, like using the products we are set to launch in the market at the end of next year. This finally will allow them to differentiate which products actually work for them.”
2) Understand if there are skin-aging biomarkers related to specific ethnicities (comparing data of Caucasian, Afro-American, Asian and Latino populations). This is the first step to develop personalized products.
