Political pundits say politics is a game about numbers, and in Kenya, politicians seem to promise just about anything under the skies to get as many numbers as possible on their side. Before the 2013 general election, the current ruling political party in Kenya made promises to voters across the nation to facilitate ICT training across schools in the country starting from Class One.

That promise did not quite materialize in their first term in office which ended on August 8th, 2018, when the next general election was held. Though the did lay the foundation of the deployment of the laptops to schools in 2016; three years into their term in office.

A report published by the Business Daily says some 2,164 public primary schools are yet to get the promised laptops. That is two years later after the launch of the Digital Literacy Plan by the government.

According to the Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Amina Mohamed, the rollout of the laptops across public schools has faced several challenges including the fact that teachers are not embracing the use of technology in classrooms.

CS Mohamed was addressing a House …read more

For years, Google has been the only player in online digital advertising space worth talking about. That was until Facebook came into the picture, and now the two companies are sharing the bulk of online advertising revenue among themselves. Well, Amazon has over the recent years been described by marketers as the burgeoning third-force in online advertising.

While Google position online as the go-to-platform for general information search. Amazon is increasingly the go-to-platform when searching for information for things a consumer wants to buy. And it is a growing trend, not just in North America or Europe, but the world over.

For marketers looking to catch the eye-balls, it makes more sense to advertise on Amazon platform than it does on Google. Particularly if you are selling products users would want to buy; physical items as opposed to digital products.

This growing trend could just make Amazon the biggest threat to Google advertising revenue since Facebook. According to a report by the CNBC, some marketers are moving more than 50% of their advertising budgets to Amazon ads as opposed to Google ads. The CNBC apparently came up with …read more

Between 2014 and 2017, e-commerce giant Amazon has tried using an Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool to rate the best job candidates as it does with the products on its online catalogs. It gives the applicants a rating of between one to five stars, as cited by Reuters.

One year into the deployment of the AI tool, the programmers came to the realization that their ‘holy grail’ recruitment too was very biased against women. The algorithmic system running the tool was not good enough at identifying the potential of all job candidates; while the female applicants consistently got lower ratings, their male counterparts were fairly assessed.

The problem of Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO)

Upon in-depth study on why the recruitment AI by Amazon was consistently churning out male employees while dismissing female job candidates reveals not a problem with the algorithm in and by itself. But in the data fed into the algorithm to help it distinguish between male and female employees.

An AI system learns from the data it has been given. To make an AI to distinguish between a rat and an elephant, it …read more

According to an internal document at Apple obtained by MacRumors and Motherboard, it appears the Cupertino company does not like it when you open your MacBook Pro laptop and repair it. Also, they don’t want you to take it to a third-party repair service. They would rather have you visit only an Apple Store near you or any of their affiliate third-parties.

Apple is reportedly using a proprietary system configuration software that will verify the repair workmanship. Should the Apple service Toolkit 2 not be run after the repair, the MacBook Pro will remain in an ‘inoperative system,’ while the repair status remaining as ‘incomplete.’

That means as a MacBook Pro owner or a repair service shop, who don’t have the Apple Toolkit 2 to your disposal, you cannot make repairs on the machine’s logic board, Touch ID board, display assembly, and trackpad. The restriction seems to be affecting Apple machines with the T2 security chips; that is the 2018 MacBook Pros and iMac Pro.

Should someone without the Toolkit 2 open the machine to repair it, the laptop will be locked …read more
