Event description
Join us for a weekend of biotech, nanotech, computer science and existential hope extravaganza!

About this event

Once a year, we invite Foresight’s top fellows, mentors, keynotes, funders, and members to coordinate on the main technology breakthroughs across our biotech, nanotech and computer science working groups. We discuss how to accelerate progress toward beneficial futures, and burst those tech silos to collaborate across disciplines, nations and generations.

This year for the first time, we gather this now international community with hybrid festivities across continents. Join us for a fast-forward dip into flourishing futures across different hubs in San Francisco, a castle in France, and in cyberspace.

Starting with our San Francisco event on Saturday and Sunday, December 4 & 5, 2021, and closing with our France event on Saturday and Sunday, Dec 11 & 12, you can join us in either -- or both? -- locations, or attend the cyberspace layer only.

Your ticket automatically gives you access to our virtual community that allows asynchronous collaboration with the Foresight community across continents. It doesn't stop at Vision Weekend: this event is but the kick-off of our continuous 2022 program. This means that the friends you meet and make will be collaborating with you throughout the next year as we chart flourishing futures in biotech, nanotech, neurotech, computing, and space together. We're cooking up a program that is peppered with surprises, both in cyberspace and in-person!

Join our members, fellows, mentors, and keynotes from around the world in celebration of the 2021 technology breakthroughs across our biotech, nanotech and cs catalyst groups.

Burst tech silos to make friends across disciplines, nations and generations.

Prepare to launch into our 2022 program – and the long-term future.

To get an idea of the people invited and topics we may discuss, please find previous member gatherings and see the 2021 seminar summaries in each catalyst group:

LOCATION EUROPE

We invite you to a unique experience, hosted at Château du Fey, Villecien, France. (in collaboration with San Francisco parallel event)

Located 90 minutes from Paris in the hills of Burgundy, the 17th century Château du Feÿ is a laboratory to experiment with ways of connecting that can be a model for the future. It is a place of possibility, of ground breaking and blueprint making, of bridging worlds and ideas.

Associate pass gives you access to the day programs, Ally pass (limited) includes two nights at the chateau, from Friday to Sunday (including VIP dinner), to participate in the full gathering and enjoy the special place.

LOCATION CYBERSPACE: ALL YEAR

This year, Vision Weekend is also happening in cyberspace, and Foresight’s community becomes AI powered.

Our community holds a wealth of ideas, experience, and expertise. And the issues we aim to address can only be solved by coordinating across the world.

After each talk, participants will be able to meet, communicate and collaborate, from anywhere in the universe (as long as they registered for the event).

Register for a "virtual" ticket to participate online (only if you don’t intend to attend on site).

As an Associate, you can meet minds like yours from around the globe in cyberspace. Launching at Vision Weekend, and continuing throughout 2022, we invite you to join our cyberspace layer for virtual seminars, collaborations and community.

PREVIOUS YEARS

FORESIGHT INSTITUTE

Our community is where breakthrough technologies are born. For the last 35 years, Foresight, based in California, has been gathering and supporting the thinkers shaping the edge of science and tech innovation. Nanotechnology, AGI, smart contracts, prediction markets, and specific longevity approaches: name it, we were there for it.

Foresight’s programs focus on advancing molecular nanotechnology, biotechnology for longevity, and computer science, but our work extends cross disciplinarily into other related tech fields, such as space, neurotech.

We are a positive-future-movement, composed of multiple, specialized but coordinated sub-projects. Each of them is a piece of the puzzle of our grand future.

We are expanding our horizons and want to meet our global community that grew virtually around these interests in person. Join us in France for a fast-forward dip into flourishing futures: an eye-opening journey through the ground-breaking innovations built by our international community.
