There are many areas in longevity, nanotechnology, brain-computer interfaces, private computing, and space tech that could benefit from support. For outside funding and talent it can be hard to find out how to help. To aid coordination, technology trees provide an overview of the field, existing work and open challenges.
Led by domain expert interviews, our tech tree architects are building trees to map the main areas, projects, and open challenges in longevity, atomically precise manufacturing, brain-computer interfaces, private ML, and asteroid mining. Long-term, the trees will integrate across domains.
This hackathon, with judges including Balaji Srinivasan, 1729, Evan Miyazono, Protocol Labs, Trent McConaghy, Ocean Protocol, is for building better tech tree mapping software. The goal is to open the trees up to crowd-sourcing and funding, so that innovators can chart desired paths through the tech forests. First prototypes with their bounties can be found below.
