“Over the last couple of years, a billion new people have joined the super-connected world. Billions more around the developing world, now, walk with a high-speed computer in their pockets. And yet, they don’t have a bank account, a formal education or access to most of the services we take for granted in the U.S. Imagine the possibilities… imagine how you can change the lives of billions of people.”

On the human element at a local level, with local knowledge to make things happen in the developing world
his may feel just like any other post about AI paraphrasing The Economist or a16z. But, it’s not about artificial neural networks or about training machines to think. It’s about human will. It’s an outcry for battle written for every founder working hard from emerging ecosystems around our planet. Even if they still feel the odds are against them and see walls being built, AI may very well be the tool they needed to truly make it big. Maybe now they can start a company built to solve a local problem and scale to change the world for the better.
