Both IG’s have an expressed interest in how the data revolution can enable and assist Low and Middle Income Countries. The Cloud computing IG approaches this from a technical perspective in terms of enabling researchers in LMIC’s to access data and computation. The Data for Development IG approaches this from the perspective of how data can aid development studies, human rights, conflict research and vulnerable and hidden populations.
