A three-day virtual conference will be held to discuss issues related to knowledge systems such as innovation spaces, digital resources, open-source software development, and education. The conference will address both the opportunities and challenges associated with these systems, including low costs of sharing and collaboration, as well as privacy, security, inequality, and biases.
