George Sadowsky has helped develop and deploy Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to over 50 developing countries. After spending his early career as an applied mathematician and programmer, he began to concentrate on applying computers to economic and social policy, leading academic computing and networking organizations, and making ICTs useful throughout the world. During his 13-year tenure at the United Nations, which began in 1973, Sadowsky introduced the use of microcomputers for census data processing in Africa and supported the computing activities of China’s 1982 Census of Population and Housing.
