PowerPoint Presentation REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA Disruptive innovations and new Hilda Mutseyekwa Director Economics, POTRAZ, Zimbabwe DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS AND NEW APPROACHES TO CONNECTIVITY AND INTERCONNECTION. http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA PRESENTATION OUTLINE • EMERGING TRENDS • DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • NEW APPROACHES TO CONNECTIVITY • NEW APPROACHES TO INTERCONNECTION • FUTURE WORK http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA EMERGING TRENDS • From the steam engine ( factory automation and railway) to electricity to digitalization and now at the crossover of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. • Foundational General Purpose Technologies (GPTs) influencing each other. • More specialized technologies being born out of the GPTs • An emerging trend whereby the synergies of past inventions are being exploited to generate new innovations. • For example the potential of AI in the design of new materials that can in turn be used to enhance computing power, energy sustainability and the impact thereof on many other technologies such as robots and drones? http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • OTTs and their disruptive impact on traditional business models • Cloud computing and its ability to facilitate data storage and data analytics • Internet of things (IoT) and its capability to enhance human to machine and machine to machine interactions. • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its potential to blur the lines between technology and human beings; http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • Distributed Ledger/ Block Chain and its ability to create and exchange digital records without requiring a centralized trusted party. • Virtual and Augmented reality and its ability to create new experiences of the world around us; • Quantum computing technology and its threat on online trust and security as it has potential to crack standards currently used to secure our online transactions • More capable algorithms, more powerful computers, physical materials with new properties. http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • These emerging technologies are beneficial to human kind, disruptive and fraught with challenges as well. (positive and negative externalities) • They bring convenience; more choice, lower costs and higher quality to the consumer. • Computers are physically becoming a part of us- think of wearables; i.e. smart watches, intelligent earbuds and augmented reality glasses etc., improving our quality of life. • Information processing, storage and transmission are the drivers of the emerging innovations. http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • The down side of these technologies is that they have potential to increase inequalities: widen the digital divide, rich and poor (monopoly power of the likes of google (search advertising); Facebook (mobile social traffic) Amazon in the e-book market . • Implications on social cohesion; Challenge is how to democratize decision making. • Concerns about security and privacy – proliferation of data centres and associated costs. • They also come with environmental externalities- energy consumption and sustainability of computing methods and hardware http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONS • The potential to reduce human employment is another ”key hazard” • More jobs are prone to automation than was the case in previous revolutions; whilst • The rate of job creation in technology industries is slower because of the high technical expertise required. • Competition Issues: The creation of super platforms that have ‘bullying power “ over their value chains. • Consumer protection issues: consumer rights, privacy and security http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/gap/Pages/default.aspx REGIONAL STANDARDIZATION FORUM (RSF) FOR AFRICA NEW APPROACHES TO CONNECTIVITY • Ubiquitous connectivity via the internet • The 4th Industrial Revolution is about the “internetization”) of industry just like the electrification of industry during the second industrial revolution.
