ABOUT THE LAB
The Eon Resilience Lab is C Minds’ area committed to future-proofing individuals, in light of the accelerated changes brought about by new technologies. We put this into practice daily by supporting public and private institutions in the acquisition of new skillsets among different groups and in the design of strategies to navigate a constantly changing present, shaped by Artificial Intelligence and other digital technologies. Our mission is for everyone to understand the impact of new technologies and trends on their lives and surroundings so they can be better prepared to thrive in a future we can’t quite imagine yet. Most of our projects are focused on Mexico and Latin America, connecting leading practices and learnings to the international stage.
While C Minds as an entity has been carrying out this kind of project for over 10 years, the lab was founded in June 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, when C Minds and the world realized the unpredictable shifts humanity is bound to experience and the new speed at which these are happening. More than ever, there is an urgent need for eye-opening and support when it comes to the risks engendered by our accelerated adoption of technology. At Eon, we believe technology can and must be used as a force for good but that its potential will only be achieved if it is developed, adopted, applied, and used responsibly and ethically. That is exactly what we are working for and towards.
For us, achieving a better tomorrow implies weaving collaborations among key actors from all levels and sectors in leading-edge projects on a wide range of topics at the intersection of new technologies and societal wellbeing. Our projects range from pilot projects to state-of-the-art research and recommendations for different actors, all carefully crafted by a talented team of multidisciplinary, international, and creative minds. We come together from fields as diverse as business, philosophy, social impact, communications, engineering and international relations.
Examples of our work include the prototyping of AI governance mechanisms in order to emit recommendations for regulators; the development of a handbook on the safe adoption of digital platforms in schools; or the drafting of a practical guide for startups to adopt ethical AI practices and the elaboration of Future of Work strategies. Have a look at our projects below for more examples.
What makes us such a great partner in change is our multi-sector collaborative approach to generating systemic change, our profound attention to detail, intentionality and resourcefulness.

OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
AI for Better Teachers (2019)
We worked with the leading Mexican education organization UNETE to explore to what extent personalizing their existing training program based on past data could grow their impact. Together with our technological partners, we created a predictive model to strengthen their training of teachers, who in turn are tasked with training their students in digital skillsets.
WHAT OUR PARTNERS THINK
"C Minds' talk about Open Banking both provoked and inspired, setting off an active conversation about the forthcoming opportunities for us in the near future."
