Google In A Box Helps Bring The Internet To Remote Villages
Question Box acts like a physical search engine by connecting rural populations -- through a live operator -- to a wealth of real-time information.
In remote parts of the world, finding an answer to a trivial question isn’t as easy as taking out your smartphone and searching for it on Google. Access to a phone or an Internet connection is scarce for many people living in nonindustrial cities or rural areas. California NGO Open Mind hopes to bridge this knowledge gap with Question Box.
