Data Science Nigeria (DSN) has won the best poster award at the 21st edition of the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (EC' 20), the world's premier conference on the interface of economics and computer science. The conference held virtually between July 13 and 17, 2020 and was organised by the Association for Computing Machinery, New York, United States.


Since 1999, the ACM Special Interest Group on Economics and Computation (SIGecom) has sponsored the leading scientific conference on advances in theory, empirics, and applications at the interface of economics and computation. The 21st ACM Conference featured invited speakers, posters, workshops, and tutorials. 


This year, Data Science Nigeria presented its award-winning poster, "Shared trust to End Poverty and Promote Financial Inclusion", alongside leading institutions like Stanford University, Harvard University, University of Oxford, Imperial College London and many institutions in Africa. The poster explores how real-time crowdsourcing of financial fraud data can proactively prevent fraud based on the established theories of social trust path design, network-enabled social regularization and truthful mechanisms.
