About BlueDot Impact
Over the past decade, numerous world-changing technologies, such as generative AI models and CRISPR gene editing tools, have been developed. We believe the rate of technological development will continue at a rapid pace, with the potential to create an amazing future for all of humankind, and the potential to cause catastrophic harm to our civilisation.
The global community needs a significantly more capable and well-resourced workforce to collaboratively steer the development of emerging technologies for the benefit of all, and to mitigate and respond to emerging catastrophic threats. Few concerted efforts exist to develop or coordinate this global capability. While thousands of highly skilled and motivated people are interested in working on these issues, many don’t yet have the support, awareness or self-belief required to contribute or take a leap with their careers.
We’re focused on building courses that provide a high-quality learning experience, an engaging and empowering community, and the motivation and strategic context required to take action to solve globally pressing issues.
Knowledge: We design courses on the fundamental arguments within our focus areas, presented and delivered in line with key findings from the science of learning, to support participants in developing the knowledge and skills required to contribute effectively.
Community: We build curated communities of engaged, talented individuals who collaborate and build relationships that benefit them throughout their careers.
Opportunities: We support community members to work directly on our focus areas by guiding them through career planning, growing their network with active practitioners, and matching them with relevant organisations.
