This week I experienced an extraordinary two days of thought-provoking and world-changing ideas at the Singularity University South Africa Summit (SingularityU).

I was honoured to speak on this platform as a faculty member of the Singularity University South Africa. This is a global community that uses exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. Its mission is to educate, inspire and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges.

This learning and innovation platform empowers individuals and organisations with the mindset, skillset, and network to build breakthrough solutions that leverage emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and digital biology.

The conference this year, inspired more technological innovation in Africa and we were all inspired to use technology to drive our continent forward.

I ended my speaking engagements at the MyBroadband Conference.

It’s always great to be amongst leaders and to hear from the major telecoms players in the country.

I leave you with this African proverb “You are the African that can fix Africa”
