Foresight is exploring a DAO to fund progress in its core focus areas, e.g. by funding Foresight fellows and tech trees:
Led by domain experts, and ultimately open for crowd-sourcing, we're building trees for challenges in longevity, atomically precise manufacturing, brain-computer interfaces, private ML, and asteroid mining. Long-term, these trees may integrate across domains, allowing different funders to chart desired paths through the tech forests.
Our current plan is for researchers to submit challenges to make progress on their node. Entrepreneurs bid with project proposals. Domain-experts and funders decide what the DAO funds via reputation-weighed voting.

Session summary: (425) Tech trees & DAOs to advance ambitious science & tech - Allison Duettmann - YouTube
The Foresight Institute is a research org
anization and non-profit that supports the beneficial development of high-impact technologies. Since our founding in 1987 on a vision of guiding powerful technologies, we have continued to evolve into a many-armed organization that focuses on several fields of science and technology that are too ambitious for legacy institutions to support.
Allison Duettmann is the president and CEO of Foresight Institute. She directs the Intelligent Cooperation, Molecular Machines, Biotech & Health Extension, Neurotech, and Space Programs, Fellowships, Prizes, and Tech Trees, and shares this work with the public. She founded Existentialhope.com, co-edited Superintelligence: Coordination & Strategy, co-authored Gaming the Future, and co-initiated The
