The future is us

Synthetic Futures is a community of individuals, companies, and organizations dedicated to shaping a positive future for synthetic media in its many different forms.

We celebrate synthetic media’s immense creative potential when used ethically and responsibly, while also working together to address the technology’s malicious uses and unexpected consequences

We come together through our quarterly live-streamed events, creating content to help educate wider society, and our community Discord server.

We believe the future will be synthesised. Now it’s up to us to decide how.
