3rd International Conference on Modern Management based on Big Data | The role of Big Data in the Transition to Sustainability
Prof. Phoebe Koundouri gave a keynote speech with the title ”The role of Big Data in the Transition to Sustainability” at the 3rd International Conference on Modern Management based on Big Data (MMBD2022) organized by Keimyung University during August 15th-18th, 2022.
Prof. Koundouri outlined the framework around the transition to Sustainability, explained the massive work being done by the cluster of Institutions she directs (AE4RIA) in this regard, and highlighted the crucial role that Information Technology and Big Data technologies have in supporting an effective “Green and Digital” transition. The objectives of the 17 SDGs are complex, interrelated, and very demanding of the scientific foundations on which their implementation relies; and Big Data algorithms are required for their ability to process huge amounts of data in a logical time frame, supporting in this way the extraction of valuable insights from unstructured forms of information and facilitating a reliable process of monitoring the SDGs achievement at global, national and local levels.
