First, we will discuss the problems in current research ecosystem. We will brainstorm with the participants to list the problems, their adverse affects in our daily lives, and suggestions to solve them.
Second, we will show how OSO, a non-profit, is creating a community-managed decentralized platform for scientific research. We will discuss how the platform can make science open, unbiased, and efficient.
Third, we will use role-play to demonstrate the improvement in practice. We will split the participants into two groups. Each group will follow funding-research-publishing cycle; one will use existing model and the other will use our decentralized platform. Finally, we will collect the feedbacks from the participants on how we can improve to execute the vision of OSO.
This is a Learning Forum session.
