Is it helping solve development challenges? A new kind of African citizenry is consolidating itself right now, and it has a lot to do with the Internet. With each new mobile phone, with each new wireless connection, with each new social media interaction, the continent continues to embrace the most disruptive digital technologies. The growing accessibility of digital solutions, many of them homegrown, provides new models and opportunities for self-organized communities, political activism, and economic growth. It also raises new questions: who is providing the access: governments, local telcos, or American conglomerates? As mobile money innovator M-Pesa turns ten this year, hot on its heels are an impressive number of “Made in Africa” solutions that claim to revolutionize the education, agriculture, health or energy industries. Digital technologies in Africa are all about being frugal, agile, and collaborative. It’s about starting from scratch, doing more with less, and growing faster. But are they really helping to solve Africa’s global challenges and, in return, do they provide a new model for development? In 2011, MIT Sloan Associate Professor Tavneet Suri wrote that “technological progress or productivity improvements are the only way to have long-run sustained increases in income.” Still, many observers are disappointed in the pace of change, as many underserved African populations fail to see the new jobs and tangible results that are coming out of this new wave of tech. This roundtable at MIT will explore and interrogate the socio-economic, cultural and geopolitical consequences of Africa’s leapfrog into new technologies. SPEAKERS Claude Grunitzky A lateral thinker and successful serial entrepreneur, Claude is the founder of TRACE. He is also the founder of TRUE Africa, a media tech platform championing your African voices all over the world. In February 2003, Grunitzky and two business partners completed a multimillion-dollar financing deal led by Goldman Sachs Group. TRACE, which now reaches more than 80 million people across 160 countries, was successfully sold to a French investor group in July 2010. Raised in Lomé, Togo, Washington, DC, Paris and London, Claude speaks six languages and carries three passports. His exposure to so many cultures has shaped his transcultural philosophy and informed the creative energy of his entrepreneurial ventures. Claude is the author of “Transculturalism: How the world is coming together.” Claude is an MIT Sloan Fellow and a research associate at the MIT Center for International Studies. Stéphan-Éloïse Gras An early advocate of Open Innovation, Open Sciences and African Tech, Stéphan-Eloïse Gras is the CEO & co-founder of Africa 4 Tech, a platform for digital innovation in Africa. She holds a PhD in Communication Sciences and in Philosophy and is a researcher at the Digital Humanism Chair (Humanum) of Sorbonne University in Paris. Her research focuses on digital cultures, literacies and their globalization. Her PhD dissertation "Taste-Maker Machines and Online Listening" about music API & deep learning algorithms is published by Hermann and La Philharmonie (Paris, 2016). From 2006 to 2015, she worked for the French Foreign Affairs Ministry, at the Regional Cooperation between France and South America in Buenos Aires (2006 -2009) and as the responsible for digital cooperation and prospective at the Institut français where she initiated Digital Africa, a conference cycle for emerging digital industries in Africa (2011- 2015). Dk Osseo-Asare (Ghana) - Edtech Digital Champion DK received an A.B. in Engineering Design from Harvard University. His building and research explore sustainability by linking form-making, technology and geopolitics with social dimensions of global environment. TEDGlobal Fellow, Fulbright Scholar and co-founder of design think tank DSGN AGNC, he has presented his work at the Royal Institute of British Architects, Harvard Graduate School of Design, PennDesign, Cornell, KNUST, University of Ghana-Legon, Smart Cities Expo and on the BBC. He blogs about African architecture and making at Afrch. Most recently, he designed a new town in Eastern Nigeria. DK Osseo-Asare is co-founding principal of Low Design Office (LOWDO), an architecture studio based in Texas and Ghana. He is also the initiator of Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform (AMP), a transnational youth-driven project to promote maker ecosystems in Africa.

He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Michigan. He has been visiting professor and research scientist at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, and the universities of Rochester, and Hannover. He has been Fulbright professor at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Michel Bitbol, PhD Michel Bitbol is presently Directeur de recherché at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, in Paris, France. He is based at the Centre de Recherche en Epistemologie Appliquee (CREA) in Paris He teaches the Philosophy of Modern Physics to graduate students at the University Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne). He was educated at several universities in Paris, where he received successively his M.D. in 1980, his Ph.D. in physics and biophysics in 1985, and his "Habilitation" in philosophy in 1997. Geshe Thupten Jinpa Geshe Thupten Jinpa is the principal English translator to the Dalai Lama since 1985. He has translated and edited more than ten books by the Dalai Lama including The World of Tibetan Buddhism (Wisdom Publications, 1993), A Good Heart: A Buddhist Perspective on the Teachings of Jesus (Wisdom Publications, 1996), and the New York Times bestseller Ethics for the New Millennium (Riverhead, 1999). Geshe Thupten Jinpa was born in Tibet in 1958. He received his early education and training as a monk at Zongkar Chöde Monastery in South India and later joined the Shartse College of Ganden monastic university, South India, where he received the Geshe Lharam degree. He taught Buddhist epistemology, metaphysics, Middle Way philosophy and Buddhist psychology at Ganden for five years. Jinpa also holds B.A. Honors degree in Western Philosophy and a Ph.D. degree in Religious Studies, both from Cambridge University, UK. Over the last several years, largely through the work of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, Science for Monks, and Science Meets Dharma, science instruction has been given to a small group of monastic scholars. Very recently, the decision was made to require science education for Geshe degrees at Tibetan monastic universities, and to facilitate all monastic students being introduced to modern science and the profound philosophical and ethical issues raised by science and technology. In recognition of this fact, this conference is taking place at one of the historically important Tibetan academic institutions, Drepung Monastery in Mundgod, India (Mind & Life Institute, 2013). In this video, i had cut out some passages with long traductions to the tibetan language (only in part 1/2).
