ZOYAMBIRA kuyambira pa Meyi 11, 2020Kutha komaliza pakati pa mgwirizano pakati pa CfA ndi AfricArXiv

Pambuyo pokambirana mosamalitsa ndi kukambirana ndi bolodi, ife ngati aAfrikaArXiv tasankha kuti tithetse mgwirizano wathu ndi Code for Africa. Timasankha kuyang'ana zochitika zina ndikuyembekeza zinthu zatsopano mtsogolo zomwe zingakhale ndi chidwi ndi mgwirizano womwe ungachitike.
AfricArxiv ndi nkhokwe yachidziwitso yotsogozedwa ndi anthu kumidzi yolumikizana. Timapereka nsanja yopanda phindu kuti tiike mapepala ogwira ntchito, zolemba zoyambirira, zolemba pamanja zovomerezeka (zolemba pambuyo), mawonetsedwe, ndi ma seti a data kudzera pa nsanja yathu. AfricArxiv yadzipereka kuti ipangitse kafukufuku ndi mgwirizano pakati pa asayansi aku Africa, kuwonjezera kuwonekera kwa zotsatira zakufufuza zaku Africa ndikuwonjezera mgwirizano padziko lonse lapansi.
Tili othokoza Code for Africa kwambiri chifukwa cha nthawi yomwe yatigwirira ntchito limodzi nafe.

Kodi kukula kwake kuli ngati zonse? Kodi Africa, ndi njira zake zosasamalika zaumoyo, malo okhala anthu ambiri ndi zachuma zazikulu zodziwika bwino zogwirizana ndi COVID-19 kuonetsetsa kuti zitheka kapena ikugwira ntchito kwanuko? Akatswiri opanga mfundo ku Africa ndi mabungwe azaumoyo amafunikira chidziwitso chokhala ndi umboni wapaderadera kuti apange zisankho zofunikira. Komabe, akuvutika kupeza zatsatanetsatane kapena kuwunikira mwatsatanetsatane.

Pulogalamu yayikulu kwambiri padziko lonse lapansi ya akatswiri osanthula zachidziwitso ndi akatswiri aumisiri, Code Yaku Africa (CfA), ndi makina azosungidwa zakafukufuku azakafukufuku waku Africa, AfricaArXiv, adagwirizana kuti athandizire kuyesera kwa Africa kuti afike patsogolo pa zopondera, pothandiza deta yomwe ingagwiritsidwe ntchito komanso kafukufuku wakale wasayansi wakwanuko.

Mgwirizanowu uphatikizira kuwunikira kwa akatswiri ndi a CfA omwe amathandizira Takwimu, pankhani yazachuma ndi ndondomeko zakutukuka, zithandizanso kulumikizana kwa AfricArXiv ndi zotsogola zapamwamba kwambiri zapadziko lonse za kafukufuku wa sayansi, omwe ndi Tsegulani Sayansi Yoyeserera (OSF), ScienceOpen ndi Zenodo. Onse pamodzi:

  1. Konzani ndikusindikiza zatsatanetsatane mwapadera zokhudza Africa komanso kafukufuku wasayansi kuti athandizire okonza kumvetsetsa madera ati, magwero ndi / kapena ntchito zomwe zili pachiwopsezo chachikulu cha COVID-19, ndi malo ati omwe angakhale othandiza kwambiri;
  2. Vomerezani zabodza komanso zoyipa kwambiri, zomwe zasintha kwambiri chifukwa cha tsunami kapena 'infacity' pazomwe zikuwonetsa pa TV ndipo zikuipitsa poyesa kuthana ndi COVID-19. Omwe achita izi atha kuwona maumboni osokonekera ndi zonena, ngati gawo limodzi la mgwirizano wa CfA ndi Facebook ndi WhatsApp, pomwepo ndikukulitsa mawu a ofufuza odziwika bwino azasayansi aku Africa, ndikuwapatsa mphamvu zipinda zofalitsa nkhani zaku Africa komanso akatswiri azama TV kuti alimbane ndi mfundo zabodza. ndi kukakamiza nthano;
  3. Lumikizani ofufuza ndi akatswiri aku Africa kuti asinthe maboma, atolankhani komanso chitukuko, kuthandiza kukonza zoyenera ndi kufunikira kwa mapulani kapena kuchitapo kanthu, komanso kutsimikizira zokambirana pagulu.

Omwewo ayambitsa mgwirizanowo pophatikiza zomwe angapezeko kuti akhazikitse malo apakatikati pazophunzirira zakale, monga zolembedwa zofufuzira, ma database ndi zofotokozera, zomwe zimapezeka pa COVID-19 zogwirizira pa meta pazosungidwa zingapo zosungidwa. Magulu achuma a CfA athandizira kupanga, kusanjikiza ndi kugwirizanitsa magwiritsidwe antchito, ndipo AfricArXiv igwirizanitsa magulu akatswiri kuti ayang'anire mabukuwo moyenera, kufunika kwake komanso kufunikira kwake, kuti athandizire kuchepetsa "firehose" yazidziwitso zomwe sizikhala zachidziwikire, zachikale kapena zosokoneza zomwe zingapezeke okonza.

AfricArXiv igwirizana ndi mabungwe apadziko lonse lapansi, monga Research Data Alliance, kupititsa patsogolo miyezo yolondola ya data yomwe idzaonetsetse kuti zidziwitso za mu Africa zomwe zasonkhanitsidwa pa COVID-19 zikugwirizana ndi FAIR (Kupezeka, Kufikika, Kuyanjana, komanso Kuyambanso) ndi CARE (kuphatikiza pamodzi, ulamuliro wowongolera, udindo, zoyenera) mfundo. Ikupanganso zitsogozo pa Research Data Management kwa ofufuza aku Africa ndikugwirizanitsa zida zophunzitsira m'derali. Pomaliza, AfricArXiv ipanga zitsogozo zokhudzana ndi njira zophatikizira zosanja zosasinthika / mitundu yosiyanasiyana kuti iphatikizidwe pazosungira zotseguka zotsegula.

Mgwirizanowu upereka mwayi pakati pa CfA pamabungwe ofalitsa nkhani opitilira 50, komanso mabungwe ambiri opanga makanema ku Africa, kuti alimbikitse zokamba za anthu, pomwepo kukulitsa njira zofananira zolankhulirana ndi sayansi kumabungwe ngati Kenya. Malo Ophunzitsira pa Kuyankhulana kwa Sayansi (TCC Africa), African Science Initiative (Ghana), waku Nigeria African Science Literacy Network ndi Vilsquare Research and Development Center, komanso mutu wa ku Africa womwe ukugwira ntchito padziko lonse lapansi Tsegulani Sayansi Hardware (AfricaOSH) gulu.

"Okonza akugwira ntchito mumdima, osakhala ndi data yeniyeni yomwe madera omwe ali pachiwopsezo chambiri, kapena komwe angalimbikitse magawo ndi ntchito zothandizira. Pomwe pali deta, nthawi zambiri imagawika kapena kusakhazikika pa intaneti. Tikufuna kuti tithandizire kuti izi zitheke, ngati mwayi kwa anthu onse, "atero wamkulu wa CfA, Justin Arenstein.

"Zowerengera zokhazokha sizimakhala zopanda tanthauzo kulikonse kapena zikhalidwe zakomweko. Tikugwira ntchito ndi CfA pakuwona kafukufuku wina wasayansi ku Africa komanso akatswiri am'deralo kuti athandize okonza mapulani, ofufuza odziyimira pawokha komanso atolankhani mwachangu amvetsetse zomwe zimapangitsa kufalitsa kachilombo, komanso kuzindikira zomwe sizinagwirepo ntchito kale zovuta zina zonga zaumoyo ku Africa, "akutero Obasegun Ayodele, mlangizi wa AfricArXiv ndi Vilsquare CTO.

Asayansi aku Africa, komanso asayansi omwe siali a ku Africa, akugwiritsa ntchito mitu yokhudzana ndi dera la ku Africa, kuchokera kumalangizo aliwonse, omwe akufuna kupereka nawo gawo atha kutumiza kafukufuku ndi zidziwitso zokhudzana ndi COVID-19, kuphatikizapo ntchito yomwe iwunikidwe pa anzawo miliri ngati Ebola, Zika, ndi miliri ina yamavuto, ngati cholembera (zolembedwa, zolemba), zolemba, zankhani (PDF, PPT), zikwangwani kapena infographic (PNG, PDF) pa info.africarxiv.org/submit/.

About Code for Africa

Khodi ya Africa (CfA) ndi gulu lalikulu kwambiri padziko lonse lapansi laukadaulo wazofalitsa zamtundu wa anthu komanso ma labu a utolankhani, okhala ndi magulu m'maiko. CfA imamanga njira za demokalase za digito zomwe zimapatsa nzika mwayi wopezeka ndi mwayi wodziwa zambiri zomwe zimawapatsa mphamvu kuti apange zisankho zofunikira, komanso zomwe zimalimbikitsa kudzipereka kwa anthu kuti aboma azichita bwino. Izi zikuphatikiza zomangamanga monga malo otseguka azambiri pazaka zonse lotsegukaAFRICA ndi gweroAFRICA, komanso njira zophunzitsira zosiyanasiyana monga wa ku Africa maukonde, PesaCheck kutsatira mfundo ndi masensa.AFRICA ma intaneti opanga sensitenti yaukadaulo. CfA imayang'aniranso izo African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR), yomwe imapereka malo abwino kwambiri ogulitsira nkhani ku kontinenti yabwino kwambiri zida zankhondo zam'mbuyo, chitetezo cha digito ndi whistleblower khazikits kuthandiza kuwongolera kuthekera kwawo kuthana ndi andale opotoka, umbanda wadongosolo ndi bizinesi yayikulu. CfA imayendetsanso imodzi yayikulu kwambiri ku Africa kukulitsa luso zoyeserera za atolankhani a digito, komanso ndalama zothandizana pamalire.

Zokhudza AfricArXiv

AfricaArxiv ndi malo aulere, osatseguka komanso osungidwa zakale omwe amatsogozedwa ndi anthu pakufufuza kwamu Africa. Timapereka nsanja yopanda phindu kwa asayansi aku Africa kuti azitha kulemba mapepala awo olemba, zolemba, zolemba pamanja (zolemba), ndi mapepala osindikizidwa. Timaperekanso zosankha zolumikizira deta ndi code, komanso zolemba. AfricArxiv yadzipereka kuthamanga ndikutsegulira kafukufuku ndi mgwirizano pakati pa asayansi aku Africa ndikuthandizira kukonza tsogolo la kuyankhulana kwamaphunziro.
