In this program, you'll explore the social and ethical implications of advancing technology and automation. You'll analyze how we view work as a society, what work means to us as individuals, and discuss possible solutions to automation and mass unemployment.
Edgi is your place to escape and chill - you'll meet with your squad for just an hour twice a week.
"I love that edgi is sooo different from a school learning experience."
"I would completely recommend it to anyone. The conversations are so deep and interesting."
"I feel 10x more comfortable in edgi discussion calls than I do on school ones."
What can robots do better than humans? Is automation a good thing or a bad thing? Can all jobs be automated?
How might our values change with the rise of automation? If you had a choice, would you choose to work? Would advances in technology create new job opportunities?
Are the skills being taught in school relevant in the 21st century? What are uniquely human traits that will be hard to replicate for robots? How do we prepare for the future of work?
What happens to the economy if workers don’t have disposable income? Will automation exacerbate economic inequality? How do we support workers who are displaced by automation?
Start your week with a series of fun, short videos made by the edgi team. Then dive deeper by choosing from curated resources like podcasts, videos, and articles.
Twice a week, join discussion sessions with your squad. Hear different perspectives and wrestle with the biggest issues facing our future.
Get to know people in other squads and make new friends at virtual socials like game nights, piña colada parties, bake-offs, movie watch parties, and more.
