The four-day event, which will be held from 2 to 5 May, is all about showcasing innovation, asking what the future holds and how we can make sure we’re ready for it.
Sentech Africa Tech Week is all about leveraging the power of technology and finding ways to navigate the fourth industrial revolution. With live demonstrations of platforms and solutions which could have a profound influence on people and development on the African continent, this is the first time a TIME100 Impact Award winner is among a host of speakers from different sectors who are using technology to change lives.
Did you know that Cape Town is considered the 'Silicon Valley' of Africa?
It’s not every day you get to experience a live hologram, and not every day you can hear insights straight from representatives of industry leaders such as TikTok, Google and Microsoft, who will share the stage with innovators and experts in a wide range of fields, all at the same event. Did you know that Cape Town is considered the 'Silicon Valley' of Africa? What better place to experience the conference than in the smart city of Cape Town – Century City.
Panel discussions will cover topics such as the future of artificial intelligence, the explosion of e-commerce, and how tech incubators are connecting with innovators. A key topic is the access to digital services, something which is important to will.i.am and is reflected in the work he’s done as a tech entrepreneur and philanthropist.
