Start a new organization for advanced research and solving hard important problems #1177
So far I have done some research that is not directly related to Piston as a game engine. My intention was that working on new ideas and thinking about important problems helps pushing the motivation for experimenting with stuff. I felt this is important because we live in an exceptional difficult time regarding systems thinking (e.g. mitigate climate change, solve economic inequality, figure out a foundation for friendly artificial intelligence). We need people with interest and expertise in these areas, because we don't know what will be a key in the solution to those problems, and I believe inter-discipline projects is as a good approach as anything else.
I like working on hard problems and enjoyed blogging about it, but now I believe there is a large conceptual gap that keeps diverging from the original goal of Piston. If I keep pushing in this direction then eventually there will be ideas that are either controversial and requires deep insight to get involved. By moving this to another organization it will be easier to focus the Piston project on building a game engine.
