Broadening perspectives

The explainers simplify complex phenonema and concepts. They cut through the clutter and zoom in on the core of an issue – with the option to go more in-depth in the courses of NEXT Institute.

We are strong believers in science. The compact explainers are fact-based and rooted in science. In the process of distilling the essence from a complex matter, we may oversimplify. That is unavoidable, but something we aim to minimize.

Per definition, a summary is never comprehensive, but the explainers link to videos and whitepapers for those who want a deeper understanding of a certain topic.

THE COURSES of NEXT Institute

For those who want to go more in-depth: we expand on these topics in compact courses, with practical trainers to integrate that knowledge. Those who enroll in the courses, get introduced to the collection of works and theories on which the explainers are based.

what is Associative learning

The setup of the explainers is associative, so you can hop from topic to topic – criss-crossing between phenomena and across disciplines – approaching it from different angles: technology, law and logic.

These matters are correlated in the digital age, so you can only get the overall picture if you connect the dots. We don’t shy away from the painful dilemmas we’ll have to mitigate in the coming years.

CATEGORIES

Technology
Rule of law
Phenomena

Demystifying seemingly complex concepts, such as algorithms, superintelligence and blockchain.

Clarifying the legal context in which these developments take place and the painful dilemmas we have to mitigate.

Trying to make sense of it all? The explainers tackle seemingly inexplicable phenonema of the digital age, such as conspiracy theories.

LOST NUANCE: a work in progress

The explainers are a work in progress. We tirelessly work to improve them. Each explainer has a comment section below the content. Feel free to suggest improvements.

We’ll certainly take your input into consideration, and if possible include it in the explainer.
