Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a pretty good summary, though I find it hard to believe the people on the panel (government ministers or directors) are really the authorities on data and the best use of technology. The lede, buried in the last paragraph, is that "the UNESCO Institute for Statistics announce(d) the development of a new Education Databot, an AI-enhanced data visualization tool that works purely from the UIS SDG 4 database." The gist of the discussion: technology can help address challenges of scale, help with speed, and improve the measurement of inclusion. Data can be integrated and displayed in different ways. "Few countries lack the capacity to produce and manipulate data effectively," but where there is a capacity issue, the digital divide is the problem.
