2018 Forum programme

ITU Specialized Session
Smart ABC Expert Roundtable: Synergies and sustainability: accelerating digital development through smart technologies.
Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM, Room 12 CD

Concluding the Smart ABC Programme, this session focuses on the key outcomes of the debates in Durban on the intersection between artificial intelligence, digital financial services and smart cities. What successful case studies, best practices and new developments have we explored? What are the key challenges in terms of trust, security, standardization and regulation – and how should we construct a multi stakeholder framework to tackle these issues? What initiatives in funding, public awareness, digital literacy and education are critical to realising the huge potential for social and economic good that Smart ABC can deliver? And what is the role of Smart ABC in furthering smart digital development across Africa?
