  • SID Strategy – Big Data relevant?  SID sits on a Complex Policy Setting ‘hot-potato’:  Researchers want data  Public policy requires access to data  Public policy also requires protection of privacy and intellectual property and other sensitive information  Much more to be done:  Policy on data management and data access – where a2i, BCC / LICT can work together with SID!
  • Mobile Phone, FB, Blog ‘Revolution’ in BD – our Big Data?  We are a country of Miracles…  Almost all expert predictions in the 1990s about Rural Mobile Phone Users in Bangladesh failed and Miracle happened…  Dhaka Bus Map by http://www.urbanlaunchpad.org  Traffic Patterns prediction from anonymous CDRs on different time intervals from the MNOs  FB Likes, Blogs analysis for Citizens’ Sensitivity Analysis …  BigData is already here in Bangladesh … we just have to adopt it more…!!!
  • How do we ALL start the BigData Journey?  This SID Strategy workshop is a ‘Great Beginning’ of a BIG BigData Journey …  Let SID be the ‘Anchor’ of Bangladesh BigData Initiative  Let a2i, BCC help in the relevant policy, infrastructure and technological foundations  Let us have this Bangladesh BigData Initiative (BBI..?) integrated into the SID Strategic Plan for the next 3 years  Let us Think Big, Start Small, and Scale Fast with 2-3 months smaller BigData R&D deliverables incorporating the Industry and the Academia  Let us not shy away to Fail! If we must fail, let us Fail Fast! And let us learn from that to go ahead being stronger…
