Four weeks ahead of the event in Berlin, IBA and Endeva kick off the online conversations for each the five event tracks. Starting September 25th, we will host live discussions, provide expert insights, and seek your input on the solutions and how to get there. Join this community of social innovators!

The online conversations are open for all to join and contribute to addressing the five pre-defined challenges. Learn more about each challenge below:

    • How can smallholder farmers use precision agriculture solutions and increase their yields?

      Precision Agriculture allows farmers to manage their fields for maximum output by using data (e.g. on weather, soil and diseases) and digitized farming equipment to apply the right inputs at the right time.Precision agriculture could boost the productivity of smallholder farmers, who usually lack access to information and have few means to afford inputs. With precision agriculture, they could increase yields and maximize the payback of their investments. Join the conversation here. 

 

    •  How can existing data on the BoP market be collected and analyzed using artificial intelligence?

      The purpose of the track is to develop concrete solutions to make use of the large amount of data that is already available on BoP markets. Ideally, an integrated solution will combine existing BoP market data from public research projects with a large set of different data sets that are collected by companies in developing and emerging markets every second.

    •  How can we efficiently and profitably deliver essential products and services in remote areas in Sub-Saharan Africa using a multifunctional drone network?

      Although the use of drones for good is likely to drive significant growth and offer seismic impact in the future, few drone solutions are in place at present. Several barriers are preventing entrepreneurs from quickly developing and delivering drone solutions.If we could create an efficient drone network that is multifunctional and modular we could make it much easier for local entrepreneurs to attach a wide range of solutions to an existing network.

    • How can deep learning transform healthcare?

      The need for accurate diagnoses is especially pressing in regions with a chronic shortage of well-trained health professionals – i.e., in many rural areas in Africa and Asia. For the most part, the best healthcare options are health workers, who can perform basic medical diagnoses. Artificial intelligence can help bring accurate diagnosis to underserved areas: it provides a repository of knowledge that helps health workers to decide whether a patient can be attended to by simple measures such as painkillers, or needs to be referred to a specialist.

    • How can entrepreneurs from developing countries foster Blockchain-Technology to do business in global markets?

      The Blockchain and Finance track will bring together leaders in the fields of finance, technology and entrepreneurship to co-create a solution that uses blockchain technology to enable entrepreneurs in developing countries to participate in global markets. Join the conversation here.
