The Knowledge Futures Group builds technology for the production, curation, and preservation of knowledge in service of the public good.
The battle over the control of knowledge is a defining struggle of our time. We imagine a future where the infrastructure to create, access, curate, and build upon knowledge is controlled by researchers, journalists, libraries, publishers, museums, and other organizations that serve the public's interest. The KFG works to build this future by developing core pieces of the infrastructure, advocating through writing and events, and providing opportunities for research and sustainable development.
The Knowledge Futures Group, founded as a partnership between the MIT Press and the MIT Media Lab, is a not-for-profit consortium of academic, industry, and advocacy organizations. Together we build and support products to make knowledge open and accessible to all.
