Digital Africa 2016 / introduction

The 2016 edition is Themed “Accelerated Development for Africa with IoE (Internet of Everything) holds from the 1st – 3rd of June, 2016 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja. The Internet of Everything has gone from a small and interesting topic of conversation to an industry with the potential to change the way the world functions. In recent years, we’ve entered a new era of connectedness beyond the human realm. More and more objects in our physical world are now able to communicate with each other – or with us – through embedded sensors, tags, and actuators without human involvement. These “smart objects” can see, hear, feel, and smell the world around them. Intelligence embedded into personal items, household appliances, cars, clothing, factory equipment, and infrastructure generates vast amounts of valuable data that can be collected, networked, and analyzed for a wide range of business, societal, and personal advances.
