Foresight Institute: promoting transformative technologies

Foresight Institute is a leading think tank and public interest organization focused on transformative future technologies. Founded in 1986, its mission is to discover and promote the upsides, and help avoid the dangers, of nanotechnology, AI, biotech, and similar life-changing developments.

Foresight is the primary force pushing for the kind of nanotechnology that will truly transform our future, from medicine to the environment to space settlement. We bring that vision and goal to new audiences, including inspiring young researchers.

Foresight's mission is to:

  • speed development of nanotechnology and other key fundamental technologies,
  • promote beneficial uses of these revolutionary technologies, and
  • reduce misuse and accidents potentially associated with them.
