In episode four, as we continue our focus on the digital, we look to DNDi’s use of the next-gen digital projects in open science.
In episode four, as we continue our focus on the digital, we look to DNDi’s use of the next-gen digital projects in open science. This one’s a bit of a two-parter. In our first interview we’ll be talking to Pushmeet Kohli of a very high profile DNDi partner: Google’s DeepMind. Then I’ll be talking to Alpha Lee of the University of Cambridge about his role in the COVID Moonshot. Also joining us (for a second time!) is the DNDi’s own Ben Perry!
