By 2025, more than 86% of businesses and organizations will use Artificial Intelligence, and data utilization will reach 80%.
AI services will be everywhere, creating an intelligent world that will reveal endless vistas of opportunity, according to a research by Huawei, a global leading ICT solutions provider.
The latest research titled Global Connectivity Index (GCI) shows that most countries in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) have embarked on the road to a digital economy, but they are at different stages of this journey.
The bulk of the SSA region countries lie at the start of the digital economy transformation road.
To tap into the inherent value of technology and ICT particularly for its people and businesses, SSA region countries must establish and complete the foundations including ubiquitous broadband, national data centres and cloud technologies.
