Hello guys!

Another week, another Radar AMA. This week, on Thursday, April 6 at 2pm, we’ll be hosting Senior UX Designer at Thomson Reuters, Babusi Nyoni. Babusi is a user experience designer who’s passionate about technology, design thinking and human factor design.

Before joining Thomson Reuters, Babusi worked as an Art Director at M&C Saatchi Abel, an advertising firm in South Africa. With a background in visual arts, Babusi is able to make informed typography choices, working with palettes that are pleasing to the eye. He’s also a prominent part of the art scene in Cape Town where he resides.

Another of Babusi’s interests is Artificial Intelligence. He believes Artificial Intelligence is on the brink of shaping the technological space worldwide and now is the time to use that technology to improve the lives of Sub-Saharan Africans. In 2016, he gave a TED talk about an algorithm he developed that seeks to use AI to predict where a refugee crisis is most likely to occur in Africa.

That’s all about Babusi! For now, at least. He’ll be around on Thursday to answer your questions about deploying big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to solve African problems. He’ll also share his experience and best practices in user experience design, favourite design principles and his love for Kanye.

Save the date, folks.

The vice presidential debate is over and Nigerian Twitter is awash with comments about how smart some of the candidates’ responses were and how some others simply fell hand. Anticipation ahead of the elections is building just as is excitement around the potential usefulness of blockchain technology across various fields. Sadly, some of us may not even get the chance to cast a vote next year.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
