Project Delphi

Project Delphi is Leonardo’s experimental hub that we are using to explore how to reimagine Leonardo for the next 50 years and beta test the future. It provides a space for international dialogue in the community before, during and after each of our global anniversary celebrations. Project Delphi collects and publishes ideas, concepts and the work of researchers, scholars, artists and innovators. We invite you to join the conversation today.

During 2017–18, we will be collecting, curating and disseminating the results of these online and in-person collaborations. And at the end of 2018, this invaluable input from our community—from you—will help to inform how we redesign our programs and refocus our mission for the next 50 years. We are committed to a transparent design-thinking process with you at the center.

The following are a few ways you can participate:

  • Contribute to the conversation on social media by using #Leo50 on Twitter or Instagram
  • Join us in person at any of our 50th anniversary celebrations
  • Share your thoughts, beginning with the short survey below

The Delphi Method

The Delphi method (/ˈdɛlfaɪ/ DEL-fy) is a structured communication technique originally developed as a systematic, interactive forecasting method that relies on a community of experts. The Rand Corporation developed the Delphi method in the 1950s to forecast the impact of technology on warfare. The Leonardo Project Delphi is designed to facilitate international dialogue in the Leonardo community. This page serves as Project Delphi's hub where we collect and publish the ideas, concepts and work of the researchers, scholars, artists and innovators. Join the conversation.
