5 things to know about Techplus 2019's "Digital Social Innovation"

Ever thought of the horror of not being able to achieve your dreams because of lack of knowledge and skill gap or the forced corporate incompetence that follows amputation of limbs. How about the exclusion of women in technology which could translate and extend to exclusion of women in the workforce, considering the onset of a technology revolution?
   
   
   
       
       
           
               
                   

Ever thought of the horror of not being able to achieve your dreams because of lack of knowledge and skill gap or the forced corporate incompetence that follows amputation of limbs. How about the exclusion of women in technology which could translate and extend to exclusion of women in the workforce, considering the onset of a technology revolution?


               
           
               
                   

This exactly is what fuels our mandate of Inclusion – Exclusion. Techplus is a platform that connects, fosters and enables tech inclusion for social change and enterprise and this we have achieved through the years via Events, Esports, Content and Media, and Consulting.


               
           
               
                   

This year’s 2019 edition is themed Digital Social Innovation. Why DSI?  


               
           
               
                   

Up until recently, it would have been mandatory to speak and understand more than one language to be able to connect and survive within a foreign culture. But now, with Neural Text To speech (Neural TTS) in Artificial Intelligence and Mixed reality that gap has been bridged. This is just one of many that exemplify DSI. DSI is simply proffering innovative solutions to how we survive as social beings, dependent on one another across sectors. With this at the top of our minds, we thought it well to curate a platform where these conversations that propel and evoke solution-based thinking can be had hence, Digital Social Innovation.
