 Carl Malamud
Promoting the Increase and Diffusion of Knowledge in India
This event took place on Tuesday 03 March 2020 at 11:15

The raw materials needed for doing science in India, and for educating generations of future scientists, have been outsourced to foreign corporations, an example of the colonisation of knowledge throughout the world. In this talk, Carl Malamud will discuss the concept of Gyan Swaraj ("knowledge self-rule") and his efforts with colleagues in India to make available text and data mining facilities for Indian scientists to use to conduct their research. This is part of a broader vision that maintains that the raw materials of education are crucial to the advancement of not only science, but the economy, democracy, and justice.
