Agenda

A cashless society describes an economic state whereby financial transactions are not conducted with money in the form of physical banknotes or coins, but rather through the transfer of digital information (usually an electronic representation of money) between the transacting parties. Having achieved great feats in mobile money transactions, what is the next phase in maximising the current mobile money platform?

Sameer Hirji and Sitoyo Lopokoiyit

A Silicon Valley-based startup that creates Virtual Reality (VR) apps to treat pain. Based on almost two decades of academic research, this product “distracts” (refocuses) pain sufferers from their pain during a pain episode. The brain and nervous system have mechanisms that can modulate the amount of pain stimulus received/perceived by the brain.

Tassilo Baeuerle

A panel that seeks to grasp the opportunities that existing innovation around us, bring about development to our community. How can we as a community, as engineers and as pioneers of technology propel technology to bring about development?

When it comes down to addressing the mismatch between energy demand and energy generation, the storage of solar energy is one of the most (if not the most) promising technologies.

Ramon Molera

how does one leverage all of the social data available today and how do they make sense of it? How can one use social media platforms and the data that they generate to make key decisions for our organizations, and our society? What obligations do we have as digital agencies, corporate companies and data experts have to protect the privacy of the users?

AIM GROUP, Aashiq Shariff & Imani Alfayo

Teaching methodologies are reaching their limits in most developed countries, including Tanzania. Change is needed in order for our communities to cope. In the search for solutions, technology is playing an increasingly prominent role — one that is not present in our classrooms yet. Panelists in this discussion will share their experiences in bringing about the “education revolution” — one in which technology will bring upon a radical transformation in schools and universities.
