Ecosystems for Social Impact: Complex software solutions in global development

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Seminar Room – 12th Floor

Today, 50% of the world’s population is still not connected to the Internet. Conversely, data, data processing (artificial intelligence), storage, decentralized networks, blockchain, etc…) and connectivity are all becoming essential in global development.  How do we navigate and design digital solutions in places lacking connectivity and ICT infrastructure? How do we set metrics, incorporate lessons learned from the field, keep people at the center and process data gathered in humanitarian settings? This session will explore the challenges and shaping the future of ICTs in a development context.
