DAVOS, SWITZERLAND.

The Learning Economy—an AI and Blockchain venture that solves impossibly difficult challenges with education, skills assessment and job placement by measuring the real-time impact of investment in human capital—announces a series of pilots and research projects with governments, enterprise, and major learning institutions in Davos today.

Learning Economy believes in research first. 

This is why in the first quarter of 2019 it launched two major studies: 

  1. Regulating Blockchain Study (Harvard Kennedy School)
  2. Student Equity Study (Claremont McKenna College)

And launch a number of public-private projects and pilot workgroups:

  • A 3-year pilot with Educate Lanka Foundation, encompassing 10,000 K-12 schools and 40 colleges, to revolutionize access to learning in Sri Lanka.
  • Pushing the boundaries of scientific research with Science at Home, a pilot that comes around Denmark to quantify soft skills with games.
  • Other partners include Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP), Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), Global Entrepreneurial Leaders Institute (GELI)

Learning Economy's founders and Sr Advisors attended high level meetings in Davos where their initial pilot partnerships were first announced.

Learning Economy is made up of a passionate team of more than 50 members and advisors (from the UN, World Bank, Intel, Adidas, Disney, BWM Group, Hilton, CMC, Stanford...), who are committed to laying a pipeline to connect academia to talent to the workpalce and government, to provide a modern infrastructure for education and work.

“The challenges of our century require unprecedented collaboration at all levels of industry, policy, and academia,” said Chief Architect and Co-Founder of Learning Economy, Chris Purifoy. 

“Now, more than ever, it is an imperative that we tackle solutions from a multi-disciplinary point of view, conducting responsible research, and using new technologies for public good," Chris says. "This is why we chose the top global gathering in the world at Davos to announce these important research endeavors.”
