Today, there are other technologies that have not yet realized their full potential yet but seem inevitable. Artificial Intelligence
, Autonomous Vehicles
, and many others, are shaping the world around us at a fast pace. However, as with technologies that precede them, Africa as a whole is at risk of being left behind.
This is why I like the question that David Okwii
posed in his article
that reminisces about the digital technology that has shaped Africa and the emerging technologies that are going to have a great impact on the continent:
Currently, Africans are mostly consumers of technology rather than producers. Which begs the question: can we truly control our digital future?
What does the future hold for Africa?
Or will it be back to the same patterns of us being consumers and not producers?
Something to definitely ponder on.
