Bank Indonesia - IFC Workshop on "Big Data for Central Bank Policies"
Bali, 23 - 25 July 2018
Programme and Call For Papers​
The rapid development of information technology over the last decade, especially with the progress of the internet, has fostered the emergence of new digital based activities in every facet of our daily life, including economic activities. This development, combined with the greater access to large records of financial, administrative and commercial datasets, has created enormous volumes of data – Big Data.
If used effectively, Big Data has the potential to provide many opportunities, especially to strengthen decision making process in central banks. Policy formulation can be based on more complete and more granular information, and the new datasets can serve as a useful complement to more traditional, structured data. Yet this is also posing important challenges for authorities, especially when handling as well as using Big Data for policy purposes.
Objective: The 2018 International Workshop on Big Data for Central Bank Policies will provide a unique opportunity to understand the concept, technical methodologies, current issues, and use cases of Big Data to support central bank policy making. Methodologies presented will include basic concepts of algorithms commonly used in Big Data analytics and artificial intelligence. Workshop sessions will be instructor-led, except the last two sessions which will host paper presentations (see Call for Papers in the next page).
Date and Venue: 23 – 25 July 2018, Bali, Indonesia
Target Audience: This technical workshop is primarily targetted to staff from central banks around the world. Participants are expected to have advanced degree in one of the following: economics, mathematics, or statistics; knowledge in the use of computer programming would be useful but is not required.
Expected Speakers: The organizers expect to receive substantive engagement and contributions from prominent speakers worldwide, namely from cental banks, other public institutions, as well as academics and experts.
