Minister Stuart Young MP Keynote Address at United Nations Trinidad and Tobago Big Data Forum 2021

It is my pleasure to participate in the second instalment on the UN Trinidad and Tobago’s role of Big Data Technologies and Analytics. The amount of data generated globally has been and will continue growing exponentially in the future. The current reality is that the world is being powered by big data. What is driving this development?

Today, people as well as businesses generate data from millions of sources at an unprecedented rate. These data sources include the increasing number of internet users conducting daily online transactions, the trend by organizations to digitization and the capacity of advanced embedded devices and systems to collect and share data.
