Our Mission

AIandYou is a nonprofit on a mission to engage and educate marginalized communities about AI, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and the Metaverse to equip them with the knowledge and tools to take action.

We provide online resources, explainer videos and other content to help communities understand more about the rapid advancements of new technologies impacting their lives and livelihoods. We are preparing communities for artificial intelligence, crypto and the metaverse.

What We Do

We demystify new technologies by helping people understand how they engage every day, address fears, and educate them about how new technologies are evolving. We prepare our communities by educating all about everything new technologies touches, including education, criminal justice, health, housing, labor, medicine, art, music and finances.
