Loss of Communication in the New Era: A Conversation with Sydney Johnson

In continuation of Querlo’s interview series, Phoebe Degn, intern at Querlo, spoke with Sydney Johnson, intern at Edge of Yesterday, about the challenges and opportunities in the post-COVID era, as well as the role of Artificial Intelligence in the future. 

One challenge that Sydney believes might emerge in the post-COVID era is a loss of communication. All this time spent in isolation has caused people to become more sheltered and for many, has led to a loss in some social skills. People have become so accustomed to speaking with one another through technology both professionally and non professionally, so it might be difficult to make that switch back.  

In the future, Artificial Intelligence could be very helpful with search engines and trying to answer questions. With something like Google, you type in one question and then get thousands of results and must search for your answer; however, AI is much more interactive and could help people get solutions faster.

Opportunities in the post-COVID Era from a GenZ Perspective: A Conversation with Hannah Dourgarian

Continuing Querlo’s interview series, Phoebe Degn, intern at Querlo, spoke with Hannah Dourgarian, intern at Edge of Yesterday, about the challenges and opportunities in the post-COVID era, as well as the role of Artificial Intelligence in the future. At the Edge of Yesterday, Hannah assists in producing articles for the website. 

When asked about the post-COVID era, Hannah talked about how there will be both challenges and opportunities with the education system. Due to the rapid shift in March to remote learning, many students have fallen behind in school. Additionally, not all schools or students have access to the same materials. The opportunities that arise include ensuring that students have access to more resources, both online and in person.

AI has had a very important role in this pandemic as everything has shifted online. Much of our daily routines are still made possible, such as school, work, doctor’s appointments, and other events are now available to do virtually.

The Gen Z Perspective on post-COVID and the role of AI: A Conversation with Janae Fouche

In continuation of Querlo’s interview series, Phoebe Degn, intern at Querlo, spoke with Janae Fouche, intern at the Edge of Yesterday, about the challenges and opportunities in the post-COVID era and the role of Artificial Intelligence. Janae is currently a rising senior in high school and has been writing articles and doing media production for the Edge of Yesterday.

Janae believes many challenges are going to arise in the post-COVID era as people re-adjust to being in public. For a long time many will likely be hesitant to go to public places such as movie theatres and museums because nobody knows who is sick. Additionally, traveling will be adversely affected because countries are dealing with COVID differently. However, Janae discussed how there are many new opportunities for entrepreneurs as people’s creativity is being tested in this world of uncertainty.

When asked about AI, Janae talked about how it will be very prevalent in this new era. Without it, we wouldn’t have all the opportunities that we do today, such as being able to work remotely and still communicate with others during the pandemic. As a whole, our country would not be the same as it is today without AI and its capabilities are only going to increase.
