Mic quotes Africa Center Nonresident Senior Fellow Aubrey Hruby on six ways Africa is paving the way for the future of technology:

"One of our biggest headaches in the United States is that you don't own your medical records," Aubrey Hruby, coauthor of the Next Africa, told Mic. "But if you travel to another part of Kenya or South Africa, there's no one who has your medical records, so Africa can leapfrog to carrying medical records on their phones."

[...]

"Innovation isn't just in tech," Hruby said. "There's innovation in culture."

The authors of the Next Africa believe that the natural conclusion of Africa becoming an innovation hub is that it brings us closer to African culture, literature, fashion, and media.
