Firm seeks govt backing on data expansion

Published by The Nation on Wed, 04 Dec 2019


Collins NwezeCO-FOUNDER and Chief Operations Officer, Terragon Group, Ayodeji Balogun has urged government to partner with the private sector in order to develop 21st century curriculum that would prepare Nigerian students to fit into the emerging fourth industrial revolution (4IR) technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Science, among others.He stated this at the 2019 Data Science Nigeria (DSN) Summit & Bootcamp held in Lagos.According to him, We think that in terms of curriculum in the educational system in our schools, government can work together with private sector to influence the curriculum and infuse more advanced topics around data science, machine learning so that students could get access and hands on experience at a very early stage, before they get out of school and get trained by their employers.He also called on the government to provide adequate infrastructure that would enable players in the ecosystem perform their duties optimally.Read Also:EFCC recovers N228m unpaid taxes from oil firmThe biggest problems we have in Nigeria as far as is poor access to data and infrastructure.
