What is Innovationbed Smart City Innovation Upskilling for youths about?
We help young graduates and students asides learning to code, collaborate in team nature, to learn how to solve problems that are important to them, including real-time problems of their varied professional disciplines like accounting, sociology, chemistry, computer sciences etc, by applying creative thinking skills to innovate new service and product designs that aims to correct at least one of the communities’ many social problems.
Can everyone be helped to learn to code?
Yes. First, every man that can think and offer solutions to earthly issues facing mankind even if doing so by thinking of them or expressing solution steps in their raw natural dialects can code or do programming. But our training will make each participant identify areas of optimizing own strengths in innovation career paths.
Our mission is to make coding and software engineering accessible to everyone through courses that are simple to digest, and practical to implement.
We deliver Simply Easy Learning with clear, crisp, and to-the-point content on a wide range of technical subjects

Smart cities and communities (SCCs) are populations that live in different geographical areas but are interconnected through intelligent technologies. SCCs use an integrated information and communications technology (ICT) system to improve efficiency, manage complexity and enhance citizens’ quality of life, leading to sustainable improvement in city operations. Examples of SCCs are smart community centers, smart villages, and smart towns that collaborate with each other for regional growth. The main idea is that the SCCs must address the needs of the underserved populations (about half of the world population), that do not have access to adequate health, education, public safety, public welfare, food, housing, utilities, and other vital services. This six-week hands-on workshop will give you an opportunity to develop solutions for your SCCs by using a powerful computer-aided planning tool. Programme Highlights Describe the three dimensions of sustainability (society, environment, and economy) and how they interrelate.Explain how to build a culture of sustainability.Demonstrate the value of impactful investments.Plot steps for developing a sustainable business model.

Our goal is to ensure our youths can take charge of future digital economy concerns. As states in Nigeria are beginning to realize they have to develop into smart, connected, communities taking advantage of the improving broadband infrastructure being rolled out by the Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC, Innovationbed Research intervention discovers that most of our public service space lacks the leadership WILL for technology and innovation adequate for a good decision-making process as well as generating competitive local content data to make governance ideal, smart, and reliable
The new assignment of man is to quicken competence development in skills that innovated the above areas of our new life from big data.
Show our participants How machine learning uses Natural Language processing, NLP, Computer vision and Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks, to drive process user experience and insights.

WHY ADOPT MULTI-DISCIPLINARY AND GRASSROOTS APPROACH
The gaps we see between urban and that of rural communities keep widening in almost every state of the federation. This IMBALANCE is not surprising, as it reflects the natural true political leadership agendas and priorities. Here is the reason we have based our strategy on gender equity (we demand male and female nominations from each local government in the state not minding whether urban or rural), multi-disciplinary (graduates of any course of study so they can collaborate with each other value addition in possible venture startups) and grassroots engagement to share the opportunities that abound in the Innovationbed and UN #ICT4SIDS initiative for growing innovation among youths in developing countries.
Innovationbed graduate capacity development initiative will promote real development in an equal and sustainable way across the country. We emphasize how they can use new technologies to create new jobs as the old-fashioned jobs continue to disappear by the minute. Our beneficiaries are thought to become subject matter experts, who aspire to continually re-innovate their societies in manners that alleviate the poverty of citizens around them, share smart strategic governance education among the political leadership in their regions – generally live a life of change-agents so to speak! And we are happy we are grooming and growing this millennial demographic in the country by our simple efforts.

Thank you all. Next schedules will be announced for your direct participation where interested. At this conclusive end, we were able to make a case ensuring the ordinary people of the community have a say in directing governance and for which our foundation will evaluate and report accordingly for the United Nations Global Alliance for ICT Development, UN-GAID’s use in the global MDG eNabler. The struggle for a sustainable nation building continues!
