Decrypt’s Art, Fashion, and Entertainment Hub.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Decrypt's newest hub: Emerge. Emerge will be the place to find the latest news and insights from the farthest reaches of emerging technology.
Since our launch in 2018, we have relentlessly pursued our vision to build a next-generation media company positioned at the intersection of emerging technology, alternative finance, and culture.
We don’t just cover these topics, we live them. Our day-to-day operations are powered by Web3 and AI. Emerge is our answer to the question at the heart of everything we do: what’s next?
Although Satoshi Nakamoto published his Bitcoin whitepaper in 2008, it took more than five years for cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to catch the slightest glimmer of mainstream attention. Now, a decade beyond, Web3 is everywhere.
Where is the Satoshi of tomorrow? What whitepaper, what big idea, what improbable vision will be everywhere in 2033? Emerge is committed to the hunt.
What Is Emerge?
Emerge is a dedicated space to track bleeding-edge advancements across the tech landscape, a portal to the far side of the future, and your entry point to teleport past the cutting edge. Today, these technologies include:
- Artificial Intelligence: The rapid evolution of AI and its expanding impacts on our world, from machine learning to natural language processing (NLP) to computer vision and beyond.
- Biohacking and Longevity: Radical health interventions including experimental treatments and technologies pushing the limits of human lifespan and performance.
- Decentralized Science (DeSci): Applying blockchain and Web3 tools to open up research and democratize scientific discoveries.
- Quantum Computing: Harnessing the bizarre properties of quantum physics to solve problems too complex for classical computers.
- Space Exploration: Following the new space race spanning public agencies, private companies, and entrepreneurial ventures.
Emerge will also touch on other emerging technologies like AR/VR, energy and climate innovations, robotics, nanotech—and other topics yet to be imagined.
To these topics we will bring our signature accessibility, clarity, and healthy skepticism. Through Emerge, our readers can dive deep into the latest developments in these and other exponential technologies operating at the fringes of mainstream awareness. We will help you make sense of everything on the horizon.
Stay in the Know
Emerge is already home to a weekly newsletter covering the latest developments in AI: Generally Intelligent, curated by Gen, our constantly evolving AI curator. With the official launch of the expanded hub, we will be introducing a human-curated newsletter providing an up-to-date and insightful look at longevity, life extension, and age reversal research and strategies.
