Collaboration Drives Digital Technology Innovation in Egypt

Technology
African countries are on the move towards the development of digital innovation. This is an ever-changing trend that most African countries have adopted to promote the digital developments in the countries. According to All Africa ,there are hundreds of start-ups, tens of co-working spaces and technology hubs, numerous accelerators and incubators operating here, and numbers are ever-increasing in Egypt. That’s great news for Egypt’s economy indicating that it is headed to being the next “Silicon X”. As Egypt’s local start up and IT ecosystem begins to mature, even as it continues to expand, the growing number of resources, mentor ship opportunities, partnerships and human capital across the whole system make it easier for new companies to launch and for existing companies to both sca

CES 2017 proves that smart mobile technology is taking over the world

Internet, Mobile, Technology
Smartphones rule. The world is moving quickly to 4G and 5G networks. Mobile users watch a lot of video while wearable tech is on the rise, albeit slowly. Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s biggest technology show holds that  mobile technology is behind every kind of innovation. The CES 2017 feels like one of those periods of reinvention. Where a few years ago what we conventionally think of as “computer” technology dominated, now CES reflects the fact that technology is everywhere and in everything. It now covers pretty much every kind of human technical endeavour, from cars to tiny sensors capable of making anything “smart”. Additionally, all smart devices use processors, sensors and location technology which has been developed for smartphones. In fact, if you want

Innovating for Africa’s growth is a global Imperative

Startups, Technology, Women
Africa's rise has become a widely discussed international policy topic. With aging populations and stagnating economic growth, developed economies are looking toward Africa as a source of skilled labour and, increasingly, innovation. Africa's ability to sustain its current growth will depend largely on how quickly it will be able to shift from reliance on traditional commodity markets to modern economic structures that focus on technology-driven development. The focus on innovation is emerging as a key theme in the Africa Union's long-term strategy, Agenda 2063. As a latecomer, Africa has the benefit of tapping into vast quantities of technological knowledge available worldwide. The continent's leapfrogging into the mobile revolution illustrated the power of latecomer advantages....
