Participants

We are an interdisciplinary and international group of researchers from the fields of engineering and data science, economics, sociology, and political science. We are exploring how we can go about shaping the world we want in the age of intelligent tools. The challenge, deep and real, is to architect that world, to find ways of working, earning, and learning that support the healthy development of our societies and economies, and the humans that inhabit them.
