Africa has a population set to double by 2050, and along with population growth, the continent is reaping the benefits of expansion in the country’s information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure. In Sub-Saharan Africa, there are over 650 million mobile phone subscribers - more than the US or European Union. The subsequent proliferation of mobile and wireless devices is spawning innovations in mobile banking, e-commerce, and health that are unthinkable in the West. Empowered with connectivity and smart phones, Africa's youth are eager and poised to drive the next generation technology advancements and "killer apps". In this session, join some of Africa's top young technologists to discuss the future of technology innovation in Africa. Part of the IEEE Technology for Humanity Series.
