About IDB

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is an organization that provides financial and technical support to development projects, operating primarily in Latin America and the Caribbean. Its main objective is to achieve development in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way, through the promotion of social and economic integration, equality and innovation.

The Story of the Project

Within the context of the Partnership between Telefónica and the IDB which focuses on the promotion of Data Culture and Big Data technologies in Latin America and the Caribbean, Telefónica and the IDB have decided to launch a Big Data MOOC in Spanish. It's considered to be a pioneering initiative due to its size, format and language, which will highlight to the general public, the value and fundamentals of Big Data.

This project consists of the design, scriptwriting and production of high-quality online content about Big Data, which will be included on the edX online educational platform. The content has been organized into 6 online modules that cover business skills, Big Data projects, data science, technology and data visualization.

The challenge

Make Big Data and Artificial Knowledge Accessible

At present, the advanced data analysis techniques offered by Big Data are not being fully exploited in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean in the processes of design, monitoring or the evaluation of public policy because of the limitations in the area at an institutional level. In this regard, there is a need to demonstrate the acceleration opportunities offered by Big Data in terms of growth and competitiveness for the private sector, and efficiency for the public sector.
