CyFy AFRICA: The Conference on Technology, Innovation & Society
June 7, 2019 - June 9, 2019
The inaugural CyFy Africa conference, held in 2018 in Tangiers, Morocco hosted over 100 speakers and hundreds of attendees from 40 countries, a majority of whom were from developing nations in Africa and Asia. Alongside the economic opportunity of cyberspace and critical issues of privacy and inclusive access, we discussed how Asia and Africa will rely on artificial intelligence and robotics to reshape their societies and resolve a range of apprehensions around gender, race, ethnicity and equity.
CyFy Africa 2019 will bring together ministers, journalists, ethicists, civil society, as well as technology leaders and entrepreneurs to curate Africa-centred conversations around data, innovation, gender, norms and new media.
