Biographical / Historical:
Started by Dr. Eric Drexler in 1986 in Palo Alto, California, the non-profit Foresight Institute's mission is to anticipate and meet the future challenges of advances in technology. The Institute seeks to increase knowledge about advances, and to encourage and enable free and open discussion and study of them. Its primary focus is on "molecular nanotechnology, the coming ability to build materials and products with atomic precision." It was the first organization to educate society about the benefits and risks of nanotechnology. The Institute hosts regular conferences on nanotechnology subjects, and it publishes articles, books, and a quarterly newsletter entitled Foresight Update (formerly Foresight Background). The Institute awards annual prizes in two categories, entitled the Foresight Institute Feynman Award, in honor of physicist Richard Feynman. One award is given for experimental research and the other for theory in advances in nanotechnology.
