Presented with the opportunities presented by small data in the development of AI-enabled solutions for the African continent, I noticed how mobile-first internet connectivity trends in the sub-Saharan region have readied a generation for more personal relationships with technology.
My task was to create a technological use case that demonstrates a market’s readiness for an emerging technology.
The result was a dance app launched in South Africa.
A few months after launch, I used the learnings from the trial to develop a prototype for the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease using the same technology.
The experiment garnered over 1 Million media impressions and provided learnings on user willingness on the African continent to interact with technology that is new as long as it is relevant.
