Is it helping solve development challenges? A new kind of African citizenry is consolidating itself right now, and it has a lot to do with the Internet. With each new mobile phone, with each new wireless connection, with each new social media interaction, the continent continues to embrace the most disruptive digital technologies. The growing accessibility of digital solutions, many of them homegrown, provides new models and opportunities for self-organized communities, political activism, and economic growth. It also raises new questions: who is providing the access: governments, local telcos, or American conglomerates? As mobile money innovator M-Pesa turns ten this year, hot on its heels are an impressive number of “Made in Africa” solutions that claim to revolutionize the education, agriculture, health or energy industries. Digital technologies in Africa are all about being frugal, agile, and collaborative. It’s about starting from scratch, doing more with less, and growing faster. But are they really helping to solve Africa’s global challenges and, in return, do they provide a new model for development? In 2011, MIT Sloan Associate Professor Tavneet Suri wrote that “technological progress or productivity improvements are the only way to have long-run sustained increases in income.” Still, many observers are disappointed in the pace of change, as many underserved African populations fail to see the new jobs and tangible results that are coming out of this new wave of tech. This roundtable at MIT will explore and interrogate the socio-economic, cultural and geopolitical consequences of Africa’s leapfrog into new technologies. SPEAKERS Claude Grunitzky A lateral thinker and successful serial entrepreneur, Claude is the founder of TRACE. He is also the founder of TRUE Africa, a media tech platform championing your African voices all over the world. In February 2003, Grunitzky and two business partners completed a multimillion-dollar financing deal led by Goldman Sachs Group. TRACE, which now reaches more than 80 million people across 160 countries, was successfully sold to a French investor group in July 2010. Raised in Lomé, Togo, Washington, DC, Paris and London, Claude speaks six languages and carries three passports. His exposure to so many cultures has shaped his transcultural philosophy and informed the creative energy of his entrepreneurial ventures. Claude is the author of “Transculturalism: How the world is coming together.” Claude is an MIT Sloan Fellow and a research associate at the MIT Center for International Studies. Stéphan-Éloïse Gras An early advocate of Open Innovation, Open Sciences and African Tech, Stéphan-Eloïse Gras is the CEO & co-founder of Africa 4 Tech, a platform for digital innovation in Africa. She holds a PhD in Communication Sciences and in Philosophy and is a researcher at the Digital Humanism Chair (Humanum) of Sorbonne University in Paris. Her research focuses on digital cultures, literacies and their globalization. Her PhD dissertation "Taste-Maker Machines and Online Listening" about music API & deep learning algorithms is published by Hermann and La Philharmonie (Paris, 2016). From 2006 to 2015, she worked for the French Foreign Affairs Ministry, at the Regional Cooperation between France and South America in Buenos Aires (2006 -2009) and as the responsible for digital cooperation and prospective at the Institut français where she initiated Digital Africa, a conference cycle for emerging digital industries in Africa (2011- 2015). Dk Osseo-Asare (Ghana) - Edtech Digital Champion DK received an A.B. in Engineering Design from Harvard University.

This short documentary on Koh Ker was produced by Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation and One Memory in 2012. Dr. Chen Chanratana, a Cambodian national expert on cultural heritage, has finished Ph.D degree from the University of Sorbonne Paris 3 on 14th December 2011. His research topic entitled "Koh Ker and King Jayavarman IV, history, art, and archaeology", in French version, has been published in 2012 in Germany by Presses Academiques Francophones. ======= “Koh Ker site and the reign of Jayavarman IV, art history and archaeology” Book Review by Prof. Dr. Sorn Samnang Cambodian history is divided into three main periods: Pre-Angkor (1st-9th century AD), Angkor (9th-15th century) and Post-Angkor (15th century to the present). The golden age of Khmer civilization was the period from the 9th to the 13th centuries, when Khmer Empire ruled large territories in mainland Southeast Asia and when huge temple complexes were built, not only in Angkor area but also in other places. “Koh Ker site and the reign of Jayavarman IV, art history and archaeology” is the first work of Dr. Chen Chanratana, founder of Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation. This book traces the history of Cambodian king Jayavarman IV who reigned in the 10th century (928-941 A.D), a very unique period in the Age of Angkor, and the establishment of his new capital at Chok Gargyar, now known as Koh Ker which is located at about 120 kilometers northeast of Angkor. The most important aspect of Chen’s work is the introduction of a new hypothesis concerning the ascension to the throne of Jayavarman IV and the reasons behind this change of capital. The author presented his evidence using a vast number of archaeological, textual, sculptural, and iconographic sources. In addition, he gathered new data from current research conducted by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of Cambodia, APSARA Authority, the École Française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO), the Japanese Government Team for Safeguarding Angkor (JSA), and the Hungarian Royal Angkor Foundation (RAF). The French version of the book that has been published contains 596 pages in which the author discusses history, religion, social infrastructure, irrigation system, roads, literature, arts, architecture and iconography. This academic work of the University of Paris III Sorbonne was selected for publication by Presses Académiques Francophones (an academic publisher based in Germany). This book is a remarkable achievement of a Cambodian scholar of the new generation. Chen Chanratana is inspiring young Cambodians to learn more about their own history, archaeology and culture. I greatly appreciate the French version and expect that the Khmer and English versions of this book will be very useful not only for Cambodian researchers, but also for international scholars specialized in Khmer Studies. Phnom Penh, 26 May 2013 Prof. Dr. Sorn Samnang – Cambodian Historian Chairman of the Academic Board The Intered Institute http://www.devata.org/koh-ker-site-and-the-reign-of-jayavarman-iv-art-history-and-archaeology-book-review/#.VxYlo0tTqIw ======= In June 2014, Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation has produced a documentary film entitled "Koh Ker, the lost city of Khmer Empire in 10th century". This documentary film has won S.E Asian Documentary film in Kunming city, Yunnan province, China. The documentary film is produced under the cooperation between the Ministry of Information, National Television of Cambodia, and Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation. Supervisor: H.E Khieu Kanharith, minister of Information, honorary of president of Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation Executive producer: H.E Kem Gunawadh, Director General of National Televion of Cambodia - TVK Script/Director: Dr. CHEN Chanratana, Founder/President of Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation Editing: One Shot Team Narator: Mr. Phalla Pharith Produced in May 2014. This documentary film won "Camellia Memorial Award" for Variety TV Show on the fifth China - Southeast Asia - South Asia TV Arts Week (at Kunming City, Yunnan Province, China in June 2014)

Your mind will always be there - it is the most important thing, and we must take care of it properly. Download Mindworks free mindfulness meditation app at www.mindworks.org, on the Apple Store https://goo.gl/dQ7IKR or Google Play https://goo.gl/RsTgD0. Everything in our lives is constantly changing. All of our possessions, friends, things that we want or don’t want are in constant flux. Our mind is the one thing that is always present. Most of us spend all of our time taking care of all the things that are changing and are left behind, but we don’t take care of the one thing that stays with us - our minds. How to master your mind with meditation, and how to have a healthy mind, is to pay attention to this simple fact. In meditation, we focus our minds on one point, our breath. Gradually our minds relax and we are able to focus more, and we become aware of the spacious quality in our minds that we already possess. With awareness comes the ability to let things come and go as they arise and gradually change. In this video, Trinlay Rinpoche explains how to develop true mind health - learning to let your mind be through meditation. This is truly how to take care of your mind, which is where true freedom can be gained. Mindworks is a nonprofit organization created by several friends whose lives have been transformed and enriched through meditation. Trained by some of the world’s most preeminent Buddhist meditation masters, we want to share these techniques and knowledge with others. Our mission is to foster greater happiness and well-being by making meditation relevant for today’s challenges and accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Download our free mindfulness meditation app at www.mindworks.org. Trinlay Rinpoche is a highly trained and accomplished meditator who has studied with some of the world’s greatest meditation masters since childhood. Born to an American mother and a father who was a long-serving member of the French Parliament, Trinlay Rinpoche began traditional spiritual training in India at the age of three, returning to France as a teenager to pursue a Western education at the Sorbonne and other institutions in Paris and England. Fluent in English, French and Tibetan, Rinpoche teaches meditation throughout Europe, the US and Asia. A scholar of philosophy, history and philology, he is an influential voice in dialogues with neuroscientists on Buddhist versus Science theories on how the mind works. Trinlay Rinpoche lives in Paris with his American wife, Giselle de Saint Phalle and their new son Victor.

Lecture Title:THE DILEMMA OF MODERN HADITH CRITICS There has been recently a movement of reevaluation of the criterion for the Authentication of Hadith, trying to bring a new approach to Hadith critique, especially the Hadith text. An approach supposedly was not taken by early Hadith scholars.
