In an age of anxiety and gloom, the world needs a new philosophy for the future. This December, The Atlantic is convening its first-ever Progress Summit to highlight the most exciting ideas in science and technology—including creative AI, new mRNA vaccines, and machines that suck carbon from the sky—and discuss how we can bend the future of technology toward abundance rather than annihilation. Join us as we bring together a diverse group of scientists, entrepreneurs, chief executives, and artists to discuss how we can invent our way to a better world.
