Artificial intelligence (AI) is neither friend nor foe – It’s both!

This was the feedback received following a high level panel discussion held during the Science Forum South Africa (#SFSA2017) in Tshwane, were youth members from various African states exchanged their views and ideals as to how best they, business and government need to approach the digital age.

“There is a paralysing fear that jobs will be taken away and humans will become redundant and lazy”, said Barbara Glover of NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency.

Glover added that these fears need to be allayed by understanding how best AI can unlock enhanced potential for humans to deploy their skills in new ways.

Ama Duncan of Corporate Training Solutions in Ghana agreed. “We need to educate our labour force in a different way that will allow them to grow and develop new talents and abilities to instruct AI and be the creators of the revolution.”

Education has been highlighted as a panacea to incorporate the culture of working with robotics, especially for a future job market which may see its employees changing careers at least three times.

However challenges remain as not all African’s are exposed to the same level of technology. Those who are often left behind in the skills gap and lack exposure to various technologies, are those who live in rural areas.

“Many children living in the outskirts of urban areas, only have cell phones and TV’s as their main touch points of technology and innovation we need government to investment in adequate infrastructure to ensure that members of the rural community can also compete with their urban counterparts,” said Dr Zamantungwa Khumalo of The Future Leader Youth Development Programme.

Digitalisation is not just an African problem; Admiral Joe Sestak of First Global believes that whilst developed economies have made some strides in incorporating technology in their day to day lives, emerging and frontier markets like those in Africa possess the potential to advance further than there western peers.

“There is an innate ability for Africans to innovate as they are not restricted by barometers regarding ‘how things should be done’. With the right education and development of skills African youth can be the pioneers of the digital revolution,” said Sestak.

These bold commitments were shared at the SFSA where several other government leaders were present. Deputy President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa together with representatives from the African Union, The Department of Science and Technology , NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency, as well as Ministers from Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Jamaica, Namibia, Uganda and Swaziland, once more cemented their commitment to strengthen Pan-African cooperation in science and technology to advance regional integration, peace, social cohesion, inclusive development and global partnerships.

The next industrial revolution will certainly be an inclusive partnership that will see leaders of the science community encouraging young people to be more empowered to participate.

In its advent to become a FinTech hub, the French government has given the nod for trading unlisted securities using blockchain technology under new rules.

According to a Reuters report, the government of France – through its Economic and Finance department – has issued new rules enabling banks and FinTech firms to trade unlisted securities using blockchain platforms.

The legislation is noteworthy for acknowledging blockchain as a transformative new technology to power securities trading, capable of performing instantaneous trades without the need for an overseeing clearinghouse. Securities listed through traditional centralized financial exchanges continues to be a time-consuming process laden with fees for custodians and clearing houses.

In a statement on the decentralized technology, French finance minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The use of this new technology will allow fintech firms and other financial actors to develop new ways of trading securities that are faster, cheaper, more transparent and safer.

The new rules come at a time when Paris is looking to establish itself as a FinTech destination following the UK’s Brexit by presenting itself as an attractive financial center for businesses moving away from London. Accordingly, the French government has already pledged major tax cuts (an estimated $13 billion) in payroll taxes to lure financial institutions from London.

Further, Le Marie also claimed that the new rules would be yet “another asset for Paris’ attractiveness as a financial center”, particularly in new financial technologies like blockchain.

In related news, the Banque de France, the country’s central bank, revealed its first experiment using blockchain technology with a focus on cross-border payments within the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). In mid-2016, the country’s first banking blockchain consortium took shape with a number of major financial institutions including Société Générale and BNP Paribas working toward developing blockchain infrastructure for small and medium-sized businesses.
