Creating a dynamic and supportive environment.
Researching the principles of intelligence
Mindfire launches one or more missions per year to a specific topic, each mission building on the findings of the previous mission. Mindfire missions are structured by key intelligence research topics, such as cellular automaton, artificial organisms, artificial neural networks, and robotics and led by leading researchers in the fields of Neuroscience, A.I. and Ethics.
Mindfire’s scientific advisory boards define the goal of each mission and support the talents throughout. Leading AI researchers and innovation coaches act as mentors. There are no hierarchies, only a shared sense of purpose. Mindfire’s ethics board ensures that all findings are in the public domain.
Talents are key to the success of Mindfire, and they are selected based on their potential contribution to the mission. Mindfire is open to all interested candidates, irrespective of academic credentials. Travel, accommodation and all activities are fully covered by the Mindfire Foundation. Talents are rewarded with Mindfire Tokens.

Program & Timeline
Mindfire will launch one or more missions per year and each mission builds on the findings of the previous mission.
Mindfire Missions research the principles that underlie human intelligence. Selected talents can pursue topics in depth, with mentorship available in areas such as Neuroscience, AI Robotics and Ethics. Talents explore technologies first-hand during Mindfire Missions, which features 3D printers, robots, virtual reality headsets, drones, and a broad range of software and prototyping tools.
Mindfire also provides talents with a set of proven tools for leveraging these technologies and nimble innovation practices.
The first Mindfire mission was held from 12-16 May 2018 in Davos, Switzerland. More than thirty talents and 16 world-renowned experts teamed up to discover the principles of artificial intelligence.
