A SMARTER FUTURE:
Exploring Big Data Opportunities
for T&T

1-2 DECEMBER 2020

AGENDA OVERVIEW

Trinidad and Tobago is well placed to be the regional Big Data leader.

By bringing together key stakeholders, the Forum will explore the transformational potential of Big Data and look at ways to build and promote trust, collaboration and innovation across multiple sectors.

The Forum will illustrate the potential for Big Data to add value and reduce risk across business, social and economic spheres.

The Forum is proposed as a virtual event (two half- days) with a mix of panel discussions, keynotes and case study presentations where influential actors gather to shape the future of Big Data in Trinidad and Tobago, and regionally.

The United Nations has supported the people and the Government of Trinidad and Tobago for more than 50 years.

Over that period, the United Nations has offered development assistance, ensuring that no one is left behind as outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and striving towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
