Emerging technologies can change the African financial landscape

Africa is the home to 1.2 billion people and what has been described as the world’s largest trade area — the African Continental Free Trade Area. Africa is forging a new path to driving development, and access to financial services will play a significant role in its economic growth. The need to provide improved systems for poverty reduction, if not alleviation, is further accentuated when one considers that 416 million Africans live in extreme poverty, and access to financial services is right at the heart of the solution.

In a review of the impact of financial inclusion on economic growth, the World Bank argues that “such services must be provided responsibly and safely to the consumer, and sustainably to the provider.” Construed appropriately, financial inclusion has the potential to reduce poverty and inequality by helping disadvantaged groups to benefit from opportunities that otherwise would not have been available.

Anti-drone tech’s tangled regulatory landscape

Staff test a system to keep drones away from Beijing Daxing International Airport on July 12, 2019, before putting the technology into service.

The market, and the military, have yet to settle on the best way to stop a drone.

Relatively small, easy-to-acquire drones have been implicated in everything from attempted political assassinations, to airspace incursions that have forced major airports to shut down, to smuggling contraband into prisons. The widespread availability of easy-to-pilot drones with good camera capabilities raises security issues that have fueled a growing market for technology to stop such remotely piloted aircraft.

While regulations for the flying of drones are far more settled in 2020 than they were in 2010, the regulatory landscape for technology to stop them is more unsettled. While many technologies exist that can variously track, identify, and disable drones in flight, these countermeasures risk either jeopardizing communications, violating Federal Communications Commission rules,

Nvidia + Arm Will Dramatically Change the Technology Landscape | Tech Buzz

Nvidia last week announced they are buying Arm for US$40 billion — to be met through a combination of Nvidia shares and cash. This will result in some exciting changes.

It is interesting to realize that had Steve Jobs lived; it likely would have been Apple attempting to buy Arm rather than Nvidia. Steve and Tim Cook were on the same page when it comes to vertical integration, but where Tim would look at the regulatory problems and not do this deal, Jobs would have been full steam ahead and likely gotten it done.

Had Apple done this, they would have effectively locked out (over time) most of their competitors either from critical aspects of Arm, or Arm entirely. But that didn’t happen. Nvidia bought Arm, and this acquisition may put Apple at higher risk. This puts Nvidia at the heart of an industry pivot toward licensing, which will be
