Session 1: African Technological Advancement: Breaking Barriers and Building Bridges. ------------------------------------------------------- This session will delve into Africa's emergence as a trailblazer in the global digital revolution. It will emphasize the pivotal role of technology in fostering economic development and inclusive growth in countries like Nigeria, Egypt, India, Thailand, Malaysia, South Africa, and Kenya. The focus here will be on the rise of startups, digital entrepreneurship, and job creation, underlining the transformative power of technology in these regions.
Session 2: African Scientific Innovations for Sustainable Development: Empowering the Next Generation of Women. ------------------------------------------------------- In this session, the spotlight will be on the remarkable accomplishments of women from developing countries in the field of science. Despite facing numerous challenges and barriers, these trailblazing women have defied the odds, broken new ground, and are leading the way for future generations. The aim is to inspire and empower young girls and women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Session 3: Building Sustainable Food and Health Future Using Artificial Intelligence Technologies and Methodologies. ------------------------------------------------------- The importance of consistent access to sound health and food as a basic human right will be explored in this session. It will underline the significance of quality food supply chains and health systems. Moreover, it will highlight how artificial intelligence technologies can play a pivotal role in ensuring the availability of these essential services.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We stand at a pivotal moment in history where the access to sound health and nutritious food is no longer seen as just a basic human right, but a privilege in many developing nations. This alarming disconnect from the principles upheld by the United Nations General Assembly urges us to act swiftly. Our conference aims to address this pressing issue head-on. In the 21st century, advanced technologies have granted countries like the US, China, Japan, and Europe a remarkable advantage in the health and food supply chain. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it is imperative that we bring developing nations into this technological era. These countries are eager to harness the opportunities that smart digital economics offer.
This UN Science Summit has garnered substantial attention due to its potential to drive the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) before the 2030 deadline. Developing countries are poised to seize the vast opportunities presented by smart digital economies in the 21st century. The organizer, bbcmgtAI LLC in collaboration with Point of View with Jay,Texas Southern University, ISC Intelligence in Science, is positioned to be a catalyst for change. The sessions will be graced by prominent speakers and leaders from around the world, including policy makers, entrepreneurs, scientists, researchers, and both private and government practitioners.
