What we're about

Meet and learn from other futurists in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We engage with the hot topics: futurism, foresight, humanity+ (H+), transhumanism, longevity/life extension, lifehacking, self-modification, robotics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the Technological Singularity, and many others.

This is a 100% flat organization. All members are invited to host events for the Bay Area Futurists community. Talks, workshops, hackathons, movie screenings, company visits, parties, group trips, and other types of events are welcome. We're especially interested in inviting leading futurists travelling through the area to speak. If you know of someone that might be a good fit, please invite them.

BAF is your community, so make it what you want it to be. It's up to you to initiate and plan events. (Active members please ask to become an organizer.)
