Govt To Bridge Digital Gaps With Artificial Intelligence, Others

The Federal Government has announced its resolve to bridge digital gaps with the deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Big data and Internet of Things (IoT), among other technological innovations.

Minister of Communications, Innovations and Digital Economy, Dr Bosun Tijani, also said the government would adopt modern technologies to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in line with the United Nations programme for developing countries.

The minister spoke at the Digital Economy Complex, Mbora, Abuja, during a stakeholders’ workshop preparatory to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) summit coming up in September. The workshop was themed ‘Stakeholders’ Workshop to Review Nigeria’s Statement to the Global Digital Compact (GDC)’.

Tijani, represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Faruk Yabo, said: “Nigeria would focus on digital transformation and digital revolution which are largely informed by mega trends such as climate change, which many countries are confronted with, including desert encroachment, COVID-19 pandemic, global conflicts and economic meltdown.”
