Into The New Space Internet Era: An African Golden Opportunity
Africa is synonymous with massive opportunities but also fundamental challenges. The answer to both resides, among other things, in the development of a robust, economically viable technology ecosystem, with Internet connectivity being the cornerstone of any viable execution model. In this paper, we zoom in one some nascent opportunities disruptive internet technologies offer in terms of leapfrog opportunities for Africa, and in particular the emergence of low earth orbit internet constellations.

Robots + ROI: The AI Dimension
Robots need to hit very stringent KPIs to make them economically viable. This has led to various false starts in deploying robots. One of the fundamental answers to achieving these KPIs is the need for embedding more and more advanced AI-enabled designs into robots. The caveat is that it requires clear understanding of AI costs, limitations and trade-offs versus benefits. Over time, economics will likely play into strengthening the ROI for robots, but the AI tradeoffs dimension will remain the cornerstone of such ROI equation. This thesis is explained in our short paper.
