ITIKI Drought Prediction Tool @DroughtItiki uses science and tradition to warn African farmers of drought

Sat, 06/06/2020 - 11:57am
CNN reports:
An app is combining weather station data with the traditional knowledge of African farmers to predict droughts.

To help prepare farmers for the effects of climate change, Kenyan computer scientist Muthoni Masinde has created mobile platform ITIKI. The name stands for Information Technology and Indigenous Knowledge, and the platform sends farmers drought forecasts via an app or SMS message. Although it uses meteorological data, Masinde says most African farmers can better relate to the traditional knowledge that is also used to formulate the platform's predictions...[more]

Open Air reports:Cameroon is not untouched by the COVID-19 pandemic that is currently affecting the world. The Government has taken a number of actions for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the virus. On the other hand, the state does not have sufficient means to engage in mass testing of the population. Furthermore, the socio-economic realities of the country make it impossible to respect the proposed lockdown measures. In impoverished areas, space is already under strain (crowded / semi-urban zones) and thus social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 have been difficult to implement.

In order to successfully combat this pandemic, research must be accelerated in a collaborative and coordinated manner, by sharing knowledge and data in resource-constrained areas. At Mboalab, it is our view that all new health tools for life-threatening diseases, including COVID-19, must be developed as global / local public goods available to all those in need. That is why we have targeted two challenging aspects of the pandemic: prevention and diagnosis...[more]

African scientists leverage open hardware - @nature

Wed, 06/03/2020 - 11:41am
From Nature:A 2018 article in the journal HardwareX details “an open source hardware setup to measure locomotor activity in rodents”. It has a simple design. But for developer Victor Kumbol, then a neuroscience master’s student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, that device, called Actifield, has had an outsized impact...[more]
