The continued dominance of the new era of big data and artificial intelligence in modern society has ushered in a new paradigm in terms of the skill-set required of Nigerian professionals in science, technology, and engineering fields. There is a need for a new direction for training and education provided by tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
This calls for a definitive and affirmative action plan, if Nigeria is to keep its place as a feedstock of up-to-date skilled professionals in the science disciplines.
To this end, The Nigerian Academy of Science (NAS) is organizing a stakeholders’ workshop to address the impact of big data and emerging technologies on education and training in the science disciplines in Nigeria. This meeting is scheduled to hold in Lagos on the 4th and 5th
of November, 2019.
