About

I’m a design strategist & innovator building tools for future Africa.

In 2016 I created what Forbes magazine described as “the world’s first AI football commentator” for the UEFA Champions League final on behalf of Heineken.

In the same year I created a prototype for the prediction of human displacement in Africa using AI & thereafter worked with the UN Refugee Agency to actualise a pilot project in the same field.

I founded the Ulwazi Accelerator in 2018 to equip young Zimbabweans with the skills needed to contribute to the global digital economy.

In 2019 I created an app for the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease using computer vision and presented my findings at Oxford University on the Skoll World Forum stage in April.

A month thereafter I began the first leg of a global tour to champion Africa’s role in the future of Artificial Intelligence, culminating in a week-long country-wide tour of Kenyan educational institutions.

In the same year I created a cross platform app, SafePace that helps vulnerable people move around safer across South Africa. This app harnesses publicly-available crime data and maps areas according to the severity of reported contact crimes, notifying users of the app discretely as they run / walk / jog through in-ear audio.

In October of the same year I launched a free to use Artificial Intelligence-powered personal health assistant called Sis Joyce in 3 African countries providing free healthcare access to thousands using social media.

I have a strong passion for fresh new ideas that will change the lives of those around me and I am a firm believer that AI is shaping the technological zeitgeist worldwide.

Also, I like Kanye West Gqom.
