Google Next Billion Users (NBU): Android and Data Best Practices for NBU Markets
Presented by SGInnovate. Partnered with Google.
At this 4th edition, we will focus on Android and data best practices for NBU markets. Building apps for Next Billion Users is quite different. Users in merging markets have unique needs, culture, environment and technological constraints. We are going to talk about the best practices in building Android apps in terms of connectivity, compatibility, performance and client/server communication.
The internet's future lies with its next billion users. They are coming online through smartphones and using the Internet in radically new ways. There is massive potential and innovation to help solve their challenges with technology. The Next Billion Users (NBU) initiative at Google is strongly committed to building products and experiences for these users first, and this series of talks aim to share some of what we've learnt so far along the way.

Data Dialogue: Data Sharing Without Sharing Data
We can’t reap the benefits of AI without access to the right data. In 2016, the world produced 16 ZB of data but only 1% was analyzed. Centralized data exchanges are lack of fair and flexible pricing mechanisms, data providers lose control over their assets, and there is a lack of transparency in how the data is used. This lack of trust is preventing data sharing. How do we solve this? In this session of data dialogue, we are going to dive deep into how data sharing without sharing data could occur.Topics:
