This week’s African Tech Roundup is dedicated to sharing insights taken from the recent Internet of Things World Forum hosted in London. The Global IT and networking giant, Cisco, convened the invite-only gathering to facilitate dialogue among key stakeholders and innovators in business, government, and academia, and to “bring industry leaders together to collaborate, network, partner, and solve the challenges facing IoT”.
