Disrupt the Undisrupted

Dr. Ashraf Hassan Abdelwahab

Chief Technology Officer (CTO) 4Afrika initiative, Microsoft


This talk focuses on new technologies that are currently changing our world, creating new business models, and revamping existing services. Digital Transformation is not just a new way to organize your data, it is more of a new vision to your world. IoT, Machine Learning and AI tools, Blockchain, and more are new platforms that will change the world around us in the coming few years. This transformation (like any revolution) should be accompanied by new, policies, regulations and competencies to make it happen without affecting the citizen’s privacy and security. I’ll touch on these aspects of the DT revolution as part of my presentation.
