FUND RESEARCH, FACILITATE RELEASE OF DATA, PROF BALA URGES GOVT

Prof. Bala made this call when he delivered the keynote speech at the 5th Big Data Analytics and Innovation Conference held at the National Defence College, Abuja between Tuesday, 27th and Thursday, 29th November, 2018.

In the keynote speech titled: Leveraging University Knowledge Transfer Mission for National Development, Prof. Bala said Big Data Analytics provides the compass for a nation in the journey of national development. He added that it is the “crystal ball through which the university would see not only the nature and magnitude of the existing societal problems but also see pointers to their solutions.”

Nigeria, he said, has ample opportunities to spring onto the global development train via information technology and thus have a pride of place among the League of Nations.

His words: “Big Data analytics and Innovation is presenting one of these opportunities today. Every nation of the world is joining the train. We must not be left behind.”

According to him, a university need not grope in the dark in providing educational solutions to national development as all it needs to do is look into the crystal ball of Big Data Analytics.

The VC however stressed the need to develop analytic techniques for extracting actionable information buried in the data.

The Conference which had the theme, “Big Data Analytics, Knowledge, Economy and Missions of Nigerian Universities,” was jointly organised by FUT, Minna, National Defence College and Baze University, Abuja.

A multi-disciplinary effort, the Big Data Analytics and Innovation Conference aims to encourage Nigerian authorities to engage with how big data analytics can be used to streamline public service delivery, create opportunities for innovation and identify new service and policy approaches as well as supporting effective delivery of existing programmes across a board range of government operations.
