The IMARA project

Bookmark and Share

The lack of available technology resources in underserved communities is often referred to as the Digital Divide. Though much has been written about this divide, and though government agencies from many countries actively track the state of this disparity, there have been few, if any, concerted efforts to find viable ways of providing equal access to people in underserved populations.

IMARA (a Swahili word that means "power") is an effort that has begun at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. The overall goal of IMARA is to find and implement long-term, sustainable techniques for making educational technology and resources available to domestic and international communities.
