Prof Muliaro wish to see the vision of iCEOD that states : ” iCEOD to emerge as the premier research and development centre for technology transfer and open data for economic and human advancement” achieved. Its a big step for JKUAT and Kenya to have iCEOD established. iCEOD will serve as a regional Data Sharing Centre that will accelerate generation, analysis, management and archival of scientific data for development. iCEOD goals and vision hope to be actualized in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) and the United Nations among other stakeholders and partners.
The availability of Big Data has opened up powerful new opportunities for discovery that will lead to a revolution in knowledge creation, communication and utilization. This is the revolution that Prof Muliaro wish to see.
