DATA SCIENCE THROUGH GO FAIR IN AFRICA: A NEW GENERATION INTERNET OF DATA AND SERVICES

GZU is a major partner in the establishment of the Internet of FAIR Data and Services (IFDS). FAIR stands for machine readable data which are Findable, Accessible (under well defined conditions), Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). IFDS will be a major element in changing the future of science as it will make research data findable and reusable. In addition, it will establish a new basis for services, which can be based on machine-readable operations in controlled way. Implementation Networks (IN) is leading the three main efforts of establshing IFDS: GO BUILD, GO CHANGE and GO TRAIN.

The African implementation of the IFDS is fronted by the Go FAIR in Africa. This implementation network is chaired by Prof. Munyaradzi Mawere (Great Zimbabwe University [GZU]) and Prof. Venansius Baryamureeba (Kampala University).

As part of the FAIR implementation initiative at GZU, Kudakwashe Chindoza, a faculty at GZU is studying for a PhD focusing on the implementability of FAIR as a basis for enhancing interoperability of digital health data.
