From the rise in e-commerce; drone delivered hospital supplies; connected livestock; mobile voting; robotic surgery and mobile banking – Africa is witnessing an unprecedented technological evolution thanks to mobile. New technologies such as AI, blockchain, and even 5G offer new opportunities to empower societies and a growing tech savvy youth to bring Africa on par with the rest of the world as an information society.
