About AFD
Albert Einstein once famously observed: “We can't solve problems by the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

A transformation in how we feel, think, and transact with one another – more specifically, a new collaborative model that releases the combined creative power of the heart and mind working together – is desperately needed to meet the deepening problems of the early 21st century. Over the past twenty years Alliances for Discovery has developed the essential framework, methods, and tools to meet these challenges. We call this new field, “Big Heart Intelligence (BHI).”

With adequate funding Alliances for Discovery (AFD) will launch an Intelligent IT Platform with a suite of apps based on BHI and in collaboration with the World Health Innovation Summit (WHIS) to engage millions of global citizens who are deeply concerned about the present trends in the world and ultimately the fate of the earth.
