A Game-Changing Gift from Peggy Koenig

The Digital Life Initiative is thrilled to announce a    $2 million gift from Peggy Koenig, allowing us to advance several core goals.

Embedded within the progressive teaching mission of Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island, the Digital Life Initiative (DLI) was launched in 2017 to analyze the societal tensions arising from existing and emergent digital technologies. Inspired by the core values of justice, democracy, privacy, responsibility, security, and freedom, we support collaborative research projects that explore ethics, policy, politics and quality of life within prevailing socio-technical systems. See below to gain greater insight into the breadth of our research, our visiting fellowships and postdoctoral opportunities, our weekly Digital Life seminar series, and the unique collective of scholars, practitioners and innovators that constitute the DLI Team.
