Show Notes

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.
