With Colombia's entry into the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the country committed itself to ensure and guarantee socioeconomic benefits for the population based on scientific and technological advances, as a fundamental strategy to achieve sustainable development.
This implies promoting and strengthening open science and computational capacity that facilitates storing, processing, analyzing and interpreting data to generate new knowledge. In this regard, the country has established guidelines for data exploitation through CONPES 3920 National Policy for Data Exploitation (Big Data), which arises from the imminent wave of data being produced. Within the framework of this CONPES, the Government recognizes the supercomputing capabilities of BIOS, which were installed
seeking to leverage projects that drive the country's progress.
BIOS is the only Center of its kind in the country with supercomputing infrastructure provided by the National Government (represented by Mintic and Miciencias) in alliance with the country's universities and technological allies such as Microsoft.
This technological capacity has allowed BIOS to deploy research and innovation projects focused on advanceddata analyticscovering three dimensions: economic, social and environmental, applied in companies and organizations aligned with the fourth industrial revolution. For this, emerging technologies are used such as: bigdata, Data Science, Blockchain, Machine Learning, IA, IoT, which allow extracting value from data in 3 approaches:
Descriptive: How the data behaves.
Predictive: How the data will behave according to historical data.
Prescriptive: How can I influence the behavior of the data. Prescriptive analyses determine the ways in which business processes should evolve or be modified.
