This project focuses on the social changes resulting from technological advancements, especially surrounding artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and data analytics. One stream of this research explores the impacts of AIMS on widening technology and skills gaps for young people transitioning to adulthood. This began with a the National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to host a workshop with social scientists, philanthropic practitioners, and curriculum leaders. This grant revealed the inequities for people and organizations that are not yet part of AIMS.
Another stream of this research focuses on the philanthropy of AIMS (such as this). Using AIMS techniques, this project aspires to create an open access and interactive data tool that compiles information on philanthropic funding of AIMS initiatives.
