World Bank and GSMA announce partnership to harness big data for development projects

This new initiative is expected to unlock new insights from
anonymised data collected by mobile network operators through IoT devices and
aggregate data from smartphone use. This will also benefit operators and
governments, as increased use of big data can enable better service provision,
creation of new indicators and statistics, and better quality of life for users
and citizens in general.
