World Information Society Day 2017

Today marks World Information Society Day, an annual event celebrated on 17 May commemorating the founding of the International Telecommunication Union on this day in 1865.
The main objective of the day is to raise global awareness of societal changes brought about by the Internet and new technologies. It also aims to help reduce the Digital divide. – Cute Calendar
The theme for 2017 World Information Society Day is Big Data for Big Impact focussing on
the power of Big Data for development and aims to explore how to turn imperfect, complex, often unstructured data into actionable information in a development context. The insight brought on by advanced analysis can strongly complement the evidence-based nature of decision-making that can be leveraged at national, regional and international levels to drive success towards attaining all 17 of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030 – International Telecommunications Union (ITU)
