It began with a workshop organised in the remote valley of India where doctors and journalists came together at Government Medical College in Srinagar and were enthralled by the potential of data to reshape how they envisioned future interventions in the health sector.
The workshop was the beginning of a fascinating journey about many such workshops in more than 10 Asian countries on data, fact-checking and information that would prove to be instrumental in initiating a dialogue about intersection of technology, media, information and artificial intelligence.
Today, a decade later with partners from around the world, DataLEADS stands firmly (and humbly) as a globally recognised organisation with an avant-garde approach towards media, information, innovation, collaboration and technology.
DataLEADS is on a mission to help build a healthy information ecosystem, formidable to Frankenstein of technology, challenges of misinformation and creating a global community that is empowered to navigate the seismic shifts in the media and global information landscape.
Our conversations over a cup of coffee continues!
