What is the Importance of ASF's Mission?
ASF is dedicated to helping you acquire that humane foresight – the ability to make significantly better decisions today with your limited time, energy, and resources.
Our foundation produces conferences, media, and publications on 1) the future of technology and 2) the meaning of the accelerating pace of change. We network a global community seeking to carefully investigate both of these topics, in concert. We realize that informed individuals create an informed community, thus we work hard to educate people on the future, given the expectation (a testable hypothesis) that we inhabit a world of continally accelerating technological change.
We aim to help individuals, business, and society realize (i.e., discover and intelligently choose) a future of 'exponential promise' (i.e., greater opportunities and benefits because of exponential growth in knowledge and technology). We attempt to do this by educating our community and the wider public on 1) near and longer-term technological futures and 2) the mechanisms and meaning of the accelerating rate of change.
