How data science can help you grow your business faster

You can measure and track the response of consumers to products/services you currently offer and those that you are considering in the future. Consumer patterns of behaviour can be analyzed using real facts, not gut feelings.

Thinking Differently: Ideas Create Future by Dr. Richard Ikiebe

Dr. Richard Ikiebe is a faculty member of the Pan African University. He believes that Nigeria is a very young country and similarly, young people need to be creative in churning out jobs for themselves. 
"Jobs are going to go away because of technology." - Dr. Richard Ekiebe
The question then is, what are we going to do about it? 

Tech inspires all that we say about. However, Artificial Intelligence cannot on its own create jobs, it is still people that are going to sing, dance and creates jobs out of their mind.

How can the future be now? 

Ideas are the seat with which we use to build the future. Ideas shape the future. It's when you put your ideas to work, that you can own the future. 

We are thinking human beings. You cannot talk about the future without talking about the power of ideas.

Here are a few things we learned from Mrs. Juliet Ehuiman [@jehimuan], Country Manager, Google Nigeria at #TechpointInspired. 

1. I firmly believe that Nigeria and Africa at large have the potentials to create the next billion dollars startup.

Where is the next billion dollars idea going to come from? 

2. To create a #billion dollar product, you need to solve a billion dollar problem. 

3. Over 7 billion people are on the planet and currently, over 3 billion people are #connected. 

4. That implies we should not be #consumers but active players. We have the power of technology at our fingertips. 

5. Sub-Saharan Africa provides a billion opportunities.

6. Thinking differently in three ways

• Spot the opportunity and be inspired. 
Survival is the enemy of great!

Think big, take your idea and multiply it by ten. The invitation is to dare to dream big.

Take action.
