Depto. SSR

In this seminar Carlos Sallé Moreno at Telefónica's R&D team working to connect unserved populations will present the Internet for All initiative: 2/3 of the World is still not connected to the Internet.
Bringing Internet to unserved areas (which are mainly rural) will have a major impact on local communities, in particular, and on society as a whole. Internet connectivity would bring access to a wide range of services such as e-health, e-learning, e-commerce and online banking. These services have a great impact on the Human Development Index (HDI) and can benefit populations who are most in need.

This seminar will include two activities:
•    18:00 to 19:00: Presentation of Internet for All initiative and the involved technologies from a Telco perspective to prioritize network deployments & improve network performance.
•    19:00 to 20:00: Discussion on Data Science approaches for developing data-centric decision models combining data from varied sources to better assess network deployment strategies in remote unconnected areas.
