Inaugurating the committee on Wednesday, DAWN Director-General, Mr Seye Oyeleye, said the project was borne out of the need to prepare young people in the region for the digital skills level required to function and excel in today’s digital world, adding that the time for the project was now given the current reality in the global space.

“The world has changed. Many things that used to be fantasies and being watched in the movies are already realities staring at us in the face. It is no longer ‘business as usual.’

I am sure everyone here remembers how much we missed out of the first, second and third industrial revolutions; these are different periods of new technologies and innovative ways of perceiving the world.

These periods activated profound changes in social and economic structures; it is happening again. The fourth industrial revolution is driven by remarkable technologies like cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine learning and many more. These technologies are currently reshaping our world.

Interestingly, they can help us catch up with some of the things we’ve missed out on. In essence, this is to say that this gathering is of utmost importance, hence, setting the tone to acquiring relevant skills in this 21st century – It is just too expensive albeit unthinkable for us to miss out again,” he said.
