Nigeria To Establish Emerging Technology Centres

Federal Government of Nigeria is planning to establish emerging technology centres.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, says plans to establish emerging technology centres across the country are ongoing.

The Minister disclosed this during his keynote address as the special guest of honour at the Digital Africa Annual Conference, held virtually on Tuesday.

Pantami said, “The seventh pillar of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy focuses exclusively on developing emerging technologies among the populace.

“One of the ways of achieving this has been through establishing the National Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and two virtual institutions currently building capacities in artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, Internet of Things, cloud computing, robotics, and various other related fields.

“The development of a National Policy on Emerging Technologies, as part of NDEPS, which will further support the establishment of emerging technology centres in Nigeria, is underway.”
