Science, Data and Creative Commons
On Monday 24 March 2014, Puneet Kishor, Manager, Science and Data at Creative Commons, Mountain View, California, spoke on the topic “Science, Data and Creative Commons” at University College Cork.
Puneet Kishor is the Manager of Science and Data Policy at Creative Commons (CC) where he works on all aspects of the scientific information lifecycle to make it systemically open and collaborative. Puneet's current CC Science projects are focused on making better workflow tools, changing the conversation from the privacy imperative to the sharing potential of data, using personal data for public good, the role of open hardware and certification in science, legal implications of text and data mining, promoting open science in the global south, and extending the reach of CC by networking scientists from different disciplines and geographies. Puneet arrived at CC via a rural development NGO in New Delhi, the World Bank in Washington DC, a GeoSpatial consultancy and data research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Puneet is a data wrangler, environmental scientist, geospatial developer and Charter Member of the Open Source GeoSpatial Foundation.
