8 min. lightning talk
This talk questions a perceived assumption that Africa has little to offer the world of technology. We’ll uncover the value in further including Africa’s different solutions in the global thought process.
This talk is as a thought provoking rhetoric focusing on the role Africa would play in global trends especially in technology. It is addressing the current perception that Africa has little to offer the world and that many people seem to ignore African minds yet Africans are being challenged every day to fit into the global world.
This is a talk to make us think about how we are including everyone’s mind to design the future world that is increasingly becoming connected. But it is most importantly about remembering that Africa has different solutions that could be very useful to the rest of the world. All we need is to be included in the global thought process.
