We live in a ubiquitous world of blurring boundaries among the physical, digital, and biological worlds. Technology is integral to our everyday life and it is the interface through which individuals interact with society. However, this transition has not been equitable. The enormous body of knowledge, generated from the labour of many, should be accessible to all. Across the world, there is a growing demand to make knowledge free and accessible, instead of making it more proprietary. Kerala’s transformation into a knowledge society should, therefore, focus on ensuring access and inclusivity while adopting trailblazing technological advancements in the development of the State.
To achieve the same, the Freedom Fest 2023 was organized from 12 August to 15 August 2023. The festival was an opportunity for research organizations, academic institutions, development agencies, private institutions, NGOs, start-ups, entrepreneurs, and like-minded individuals to come together and celebrate the pursuit of knowledge.
Gurumurthy Kashinath was invited to participate in Digital Education Conclave 2023: Two decades of Digital Education in Kerala by using FOSS, which also witnessed the release of E-cube Study Report.
