Knowledge Futures Group (KFG) Announces Four New Programs

Note: “The Knowledge Futures Group, a nonprofit originally founded as a partnership between the MIT Press and MIT Media Lab, builds and sustains technology for the production, curation, and preservation of knowledge in service of the public good.”

From KFG:

At the Knowledge Futures Group (KFG), we believe that technology infrastructure should not be divorced from the broader environment in which it exists. Given our current moment of social unrest toward long-required change, we must act now. KFG will use its resources intentionally and in partnership with others (you!) to ask: how do we enable just and inclusive life cycles of knowledge? How do we build trustworthy information environments to support a better-informed society? How do we meaningfully measure impact? How do we ensure universal access to knowledge?

New Program Areas

  • Knowledge Ecosystems
  • Community Publishing
  • Universal Data
  • Measuring Knowledge
