The Debrief is centered on the core belief that the novel frontiers of science and technology is the incubator from which transformative and non-linear innovation is born.

It is our view that a focus must be placed on today’s cutting-edge science and technology, and that unconventional approaches to problems our world faces must be considered.

We aspire to bring attention to innovations in a number of fields and disciplines through informed–and fair–reporting and media coverage.

Where warranted, we believe phenomena in nature that approaches areas where scientific paradigms currently do not extend must also be examined.
