EECS Peers is a student-run resource for grad students dealing with the various challenges and struggles of grad school. If you’re looking for someone to talk to or could use the perspective of an older grad student, we provide a listening ear.
With my peers Daniel Aranki, Jaime F. Fisac and Cathy Wu, we started a reading and discussion group on the social implicaitons of automation. In our first months, we read different popular reads and some scientific papers on the topic. We have materialized our insights and questions in a feature article for the Berkeley Science Review, titled Automating Us - the entanglement of people and machines. You can reach out to all of us with comments and ideas via email@example.com.
