The Carboncopies Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides support to scientists working on challenges critical to whole brain emulation (WBE).

We believe that the possibilities and opportunities afforded by WBE represent the most promising technological path to overcoming our fundamental limitations as a species and as individuals.

The volunteers who donate their time are the driving force of the Carboncopies Foundation. We are always looking for more people to join our team - and you don’t need to have an advanced degree to make an important contribution.
