Closing Digital Divide in the Covid Era:

Four Big Data Strategies

Covid 19 was a game-changer on the matter of closing the Digital Divide. It has produced new political will to reduce inequality in the global digital economy. Anticipating an exponential rise in Big Data, Digital Divide Institute is activating four strategies for establishing an equitable digital economy. In this new framework, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and 5G, would combine to bring data meaningfully to the bottom three billion citizens.

Craig Warren Smith, Chairman of Digital Divide Institute,   keynotes the Data AI2020 Summit conference, Dec 1, 2020.  The speech proposes a Big Data Policy for Republic of Indonesia. 

The policy would  activate the concept of a noted MIT Professor, Alex (Sandy) Pentland, called New Deal for Data. The video includes a  brief message from Prof Pentland himself, supporting the idea. 

By aligning Pentland’s notion with Digital Divide Institute’s “Meaningful Broadband” coaliton, in Indonesia   the new  policy would reverse income inequality  which  is accelerating rapidly.  

The matter of “flipping” a nation’s data flow, so that it reduces (rather than increases)  inequality is the latest challenge in the 20-year international effort to close digital divide.
