The Month of April, 2019 has had a lot of activities at Ubrica offices. On Monday, 3rd week of April kicked-off with our usual seminar meetings held at Ubrica offices. The guests had arrived and sited by 10:00am. We welcomed and registered them in our guest book. Further to that, we checked on their wallets to confirm whether payment was done to the Ubricoin contract address. Each guest attending the seminar was required to pay a fee of UBN 100 to the Ubricoin contract address: 0xDB13025b219dB5e4529f48b65Ff009a26B6Ae733. Those who had not made payments to the contract address, assistance was given to them. The meeting was to discuss and enlighten the Ubrican community on the following agendas:

  1. Introduction to UBRICA
  2. Ubrica Projects: URCCs, uSTPs, BMIC
  3. Human Engagement: Soko Janja
  4. The Origin of Money
  5. Money Creation and Financial Engineering
  6. What is Ubricoin
  7. The Reason Why We Created Ubricoin
  8. Distribution of Ubricoin
  9. Funding Scientific Knowledge
  10. Ubrica Shares

The following Youtube links provide the seminar presentations by the Ubrica staff:

After the meeting we interacted with fellow Ubricans who wanted a more personal and detailed explanation on how to use Ubricoin, some were interested in buying shares and others wanted to know how they can contribute to the ecosystem.
In order for us to understand the matters of Law and cryptocurrency, our Legal team researched on a video titled Bitcoin Law Review Senate Hearings ICO Rule Security and Token Pay’s Legal threat. The video which was in details about the Senate hearings, covered discussions on Bitcoin, and gave opinions on Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) being ruled as securities. From the video, it was clear to the panelists observation that the congress men were afraid of what would happen if cryptocurrency was not regulated. Our legal team concluded that a utility token once conducted an ICO it instantly converts itself into a security token.

A conclusion with respect to Bancor protocol was met, that this method can work for us. Bancor protocol enables tokens to calculate their own prices using a transparent auto-balancing mechanism which converts directly from smart contracts.
For Ubricoin to be liquidated, we decided as Ubrica team to do 50 to 100 transactions every day, sending ethers from our wallets to the Ubricoin contract address: 0xDB13025b219dB5e4529f48b65Ff009a26B6Ae733. In the event to achieve the following:

  1. The volume value of Ubricoin.
  2. The price value of Ubricoin in Ethers/USD
  3. The market cap value of Ubricoin
  4. The ICO price of Ubricoin
  5. The erc20 transfer count which stands at 145 transfers.

On Tuesday 16th, we reported to StephJoy Girls High for STEMAH camp. Ubrica has joined hands with StephJoy to create Entrust Youth Mentorship Camp which focuses on advancement of practical use of science and technological knowledge among young people in Africa. The purpose of Entrust, is to generate lasting interest in science among primary school, high school and university students. The camp will use Ubricoin, a digital currency built on Blockchain technology and computer science, to illustrate the power of STEMAH to transform societies.

During the 1st day of the event, Mrs. Mugambi who is the school director, spoke on the Origin of education and the distracters of education. A guest speaker Eng. Alex Maina gave a talk on the technology of money and the Ubrica project, cryptocurrencies and the Blockchain technology. Present also at the event was Miss. Natalia Polishchouk, who is the managing director at JstWORK.com, executive headhunter and professional career coach. Her offices are located in London, sub-Saharan Africa and in Nairobi, Kenya. Miss. Polishchouk spoke of how one can job hunt using her organization website. Her firm which was established to address the skills shortage across the Sub-Sahara Africa, is the leading head-hunting and career advisory organization in Africa. She plans to bring Africans back to Africa by connecting them with experienced, seasoned talented Africans living abroad by enticing them back to jobs in Africa. Miss. Polishchouk organization has built a substantial customer relation management (CRM) database with returnee talent – Africans wanting to come back to their home country. Through their career advisory services, not only do they empower the Job Seeker to be strategic and proactive in their careers but they also select candidates who have demonstrable experience at a strategic level. They have access to industry specialists and they consider all talent available – both local and international. To end the day’s event was Dr. Macharia from Ubrica, who expounded on Ubrica and its future projects.

The 2nd day, the STEMAH camp continued with Dr. Muiruri King’ang’a a lecturer at the school, giving a talk on Biology and the different fields of biology the students can pursue in the University. Mrs. Joyce Mbugua followed suit on a talk on attitude and the factors that affect attitude. Mr. Sam Wachira gave a motivational speech on the power of a positive mental attitude. Mr. Allan a lecturer, spoke on computer science and how the Artificial Intelligence technology is taking over the world. Mrs. Mugambi also spoke on the power of confidence and how confidence in knowledge affects how we think and our attitude towards life. The day was crowned with money workshop activity where the students discussed Francisco d’Aconia’s speech on the root of money, lastly, Dr. Macharia of Ubrica discussed with the students through their group presentations on Francisco d’Aconia’s speech.

In the next couple of days, we held meetings and had lessons on how Ubricoin can be traded on the decentralized and centralized exchange like  https://www.starbitex.com/ which deals with wrapped ethers (WETH). In-order to use this platform to buy WETH and to sell UBNs, one must have and be connected to their Metamask wallet. Starbitex is a centralized exchange for it figures out the selling and buying orders by itself.

In-order to increase the selling power and buying power in the country, we have been enthusiastic to reach 14 million families in Kenya to enroll into agricultural products, produce and services into our retail market Soko Janja https://sokojanja.com/

Soko Janja, is becoming the leading market place of choice for everyone to trade their produce, products and services. Through Soko Janja, holders of UBN can now buy and sell goods and services from one another using UBN. Soko Janja will enable trades among members of Ubrica Community, otherwise known as Co-operative Society of Ubricans (CSU). Every holder of Ubricoin automatically becomes participant in CSU eco-system.  

Listing your items on Soko Janja is done from a central location (UBRICA Nairobi, Kenya).

This will be achieved by:

  • Sending clear pictures of the products to be listed
  • Sending a detailed description of the product to be listed; this includes prices, sizes, colors etc.
  • Sending detailed information about the merchant/vendor; this includes name, phone number, location etc.

This information can be sent to:

Mob: +254 755844017 (UBRICA office)

Email: info@ubrica.com (re: sokojanja product listing) where reviewing, approval and listing will be done.

UBRICA – Ustawi Biomedical Research Innovation and Industrial Centers of Africa, a knowledge conversion organization that facilitates the conversion of tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge.

Ubrica’s effort is concentrated in the new economies and emerging markets with the aim of increasing technological innovations first in Kenya, then Africa and the World at large. The converted knowledge will produce market ready products and services.

The purpose of this project is to build Sustainable One Health Communities (SOHCs). We believe that economic development is the most powerful means of health production.

In order to achieve this, we decided to create Ubricoin, an ERC20 token built on Ethereum Blockchain protocol. We shall use Ubricoin to support design, develop and implement Ubrica projects, that will involve building world class advanced biomedical research providing highest quality health care services in the country.

We have been working tirelessly to ensure our coin is active in the cryptomarket. In order for this to happen, we have made several orders buying and selling Ubricoins on the decentralized exchanges platform, Star Bit Ex and LedgerDex.

For easy understanding on how to trade Ubricoins on LedgerDex exchange with other crypto-currency’s such as: BAT, SBT, OMG, DAI, we created a short video clip that is available on Youtube: https://youtu.be/_1XXHBXOdsE

During the 1st week of May, several meetings were held at Ubrica offices, to discuss the trade exchange platforms that are mobile user friendly. As an organization, we realized a lot of Ubricans are unable to trade on the web for lack of access to a laptop. We therefore attempted downloading on our smartphones several mobile apps such as Mobidex and Star wallets. Using these apps, we learnt how to trade Ubricoin with other tokens.

Most part of the week was spent discussing on listing Ubricoin on a centralized exchange. A good example was P2PB2B:2.5 BTC exchange. A trading network that provides businesses and individual traders with multi-support, strong security and Open Application Programming Interface (API). On this platform, one can exchange UBN to USD/UBN to ETH/UBN to BTC.

The listing of a new cryptocurrency on a centralized exchange network involves large amount of money, approximately Ksh. 2,000,000/- which is a challenge for us to raise currently. Therefore, we have embarked on researching both locally and internationally the most efficient, reliable and affordable exchange.

In Nairobi Kenya, we visited Bell Frics office located in Westlands to find out their terms and listing fee of our coin. This move proved unfruitful as the fee was excessively too high.

Lastly, we resorted to seek help from other Ubricans both locally and globally to raise the listing fee. The response from the society of Ubricans has been very positive, we are very optimistic our coin shall be listed soon in the best centralized exchange network!

We, at Ubrica, developed Ubricoin (UBN), a utility token to give people access to Ubrica ecosystem.

We developed Ubricoin, on Ethereum protocol to serve as a platform devoted to improving quality and access to health for all. Ubricoin will help to achieve global health industry and create market intelligence through a cryptocurrency reward system that will inspire positive contribution to health improvement in Kenya and around the world.

Using Ubricoin, we will gather intelligent data about health, nutrition information and diseases. Diseases in Africa can easily be prevented by simple measures, starting with proper education. The community must be educated on ways and means to always stay healthy and to keep personal hygiene (soul, mind and body) and so have a healthy society. These diseases affect our women and children which form the most vulnerable class. Diseases like diarrhea, one of the deadliest diseases in Africa, claims many lives and is very common among the poorest people in our society. Diarrhea is the result of contaminated water, inadequate hygiene, poor sanitation and malnutrition. According to the World Health Organization [WHO], 2018) approximately 525,000 children under the age of five die each year in Africa due to diarrhea. Poor diet and inability to absorb proper nutrients during diarrhea episodes, are factors that contribute to death of little children.

We, as a life-science and health production organization decided to help the community by taking a major step. We created an online retail store market known as Soko Janja https://sokojanja.com/ We have observed how the local farmers and manufactures struggle to sell their produce to the market. Lack of market and proper medical attention has largely contributed to poverty in the society. Soko Janja market has been created to sell produce from farmers and local manufacturers to the local and international market. Manufactures and farmers are now able to sell their products through our online market which has generated wealth in people’s pockets and are now able to access good health care services and live healthy lives. Malnutrition due to poverty, can now be eradicated easily once the society can afford to feed itself properly.

We are enthusiastic to reach 14 million families in Kenya to list their products, produce and services into our retail market Soko Janja. Therefore, in the course of the week, we visited a potential client Mr. Adam from Kamukunji area who was interested in selling his products on Soko Janja. We took photos of his products and some few samples of the items he is selling. The samples taken are important to us, since most customers interested in buying on Soko Janja request to see the samples of the items displayed before purchasing them. As soon as we were done with Mr. Adam, we engaged with other merchants nearby. We explained to them what Soko Janja is and how they too can advertise and market their products on https://sokojanja.com/

As Ubrica, we are very interested in educating the society on how Ubricoin can be traded in the crypto market. Subsequently, we held a very successful 2-day meeting with members of Huduma Christian Revival Church in Rongai. Church members learnt how to trade UBN on Star Bit Ex and LedgerDex exchanges, furthermore, how they can invest in the company by buying Ubrica shares.

Ubricoin is doing just great! This week, we saw the rise in the value of UBN as we continued to trade UBN on Star Bit Exchange while making numerous transactions. As we all know, UBN will be the standard currency for medical services, research and development, innovation, translation and commercialization of knowledge. We therefore, continue to research extensively on other trading platforms where UBN can be traded.

Ubricoin, will act as a store of value and as an investment instrument. We have seen other cryptocurrencies rising in value tremendously. This intrinsic power for crypto-currency increasing in value (such as what occurred with Bitcoin), gives them characteristics of precious metal, such as gold. As you know the price of gold changes with time.

These factors have made us want to gain a deeper understanding of what money is, and its effect on health. We embarked on researching various topics such as:

  • Deflation, inflation and hyperinflation,
  • Functions of money
  • Influence of GNP, GINI Index and GNP per capita on health.

The community in Kenya is very excited that for the first time in the history of Kenya there is a crypto-currency (money) that shall support them. This led to Ubrica and our president meeting with the Diabetes Management and Information Centre (DMIC) in Nairobi. During the meeting, they discussed how Ubrica can partner with DMIC to help find a sustainable solution for diabetes management in Kenya.

Since 2014, Ubrica has wanted a better Kenya and Africa in life science and health care. let us now improve lives and lift the life of another.

Thank you for your trust and belief in us. We look forward to serving you better.

Ubrica cares for Africa for Kenya.

Ubrica ni shirika ambalo linahusika na kuboresha Sayansi ya vyote vilivyo hai pamoja na afya ya kila mwananchi.
Wazo la kufanya haya lilitokana na kuzoroteka kwa hali ya afya barani Afrika ambako kumesababishwa na ukosefu wa fedha za kulipia matibabu. Pia, hospitali hazina fedha za kutosha za kununua vifaa bora vya kutekeleza matibabu.

Ubrica ni ufupisho wa jina halisi ambalo ni “Ustawi Biomedical Research Innovation and Industrial Centers of Africa”. Neno Ustawi pia ni ufupisho kumaanisha “US to Africa wealth initiative” (mpango wa kuboresha utajiri kutoka Marekani hadi Afrika).

Ubrica imegawanywa katika matawi matatu makuu ambayo ni:
-Mkataba wa tarakimu au kwa jina maarufu “Smart contract”
-Ushiriki wa binadamu au “Human engagement”
-Miradi au “Projects”

Mkataba wa tarakimu
Hii ni itifaki ya tarakilishi ambayo jukumu lake ni kuwezesha, kudhibitisha na kutekeleza mapatano ya kuaminika. Kupitia mkataba wa tarakimu, kubadili fedha, mali au vitu vya thamani kunawezekana kwa njia rahisi yenye uwazi na isiyo na mvutano. Mfumo uo huo ndio utakao tumika katika soko yetu ya mtandao: Soko Janja (mengi zaidi yatajadiliwa kwenye tawi la ushiriki wa binadamu). Naam, mchumia juani hulia kivulini. Kwa kuzingatia msemo huu, Ubrica itaanzisha mfumo wa kutuza wafanyao kazi yao kwa bidii na kwa njia ifaayo. Hatimaye mbinu hii itahakikisha kuwa wateja wanapokea bidhaa na huduma bora zaidi. Muuzaji atatuzwa kulingana na alama ambazo atakusanya kutoka kwa mnunuzi katika mfumo wa tarakimu ambao utaweza kutumika na kila mmoja baada ya kupokea bidhaa ama huduma.

Kupitia mfumo huu, Ubrica imeunda sarafu za kidijitali zijulikanazo kama Ubricoin. Sarafu hizi ndizo zitakazo husika na kumzawadi yeyote ambaye atatekeleza majukumu yake kwa bidii, uwazi na ustadi. Pia zitatumika kuendeleza ufahamu kuhusu umuhimu wa kuishi vyema, lishe bora na kutembelea zahanati au hospitali ili kugundua magonjwa mapema. Utumiapo sarafu hizi, sehemu ndogo huwekezwa katika health fund ili uwapo muwele utapata matibabu kwa bei nafuu.
Ubricoin moja ni shilingi hamsini. Kwa sasa, wananchi wanapokezwa Ubricoin elfu kumi kila mmoja ili kuhakikisha kila mwananchi ameshikilia sarafu zake katika mfuko wake wa kidijitali. Kupitia njia hii, thamani yake itadizika kulingana na idadi ya watu walio na sarafu yenyewe kwenye mfuko wao au jinsi wanavyoitumia. Yaani v=n2, ambapo v inasimamia value na n inasimamia number (sheria ya Metcalfe).
Hakika kizuri chajiuza! Kufikia sasa, sifa za sarafu hizi zimesheheni na kusambaa toka bara la Afrika hadi nchi za Uingereza na Marekani.

Ushiriki wa binadamu
Tawi hili linahusika na jinsi ambavyo Ubrica imeweka mikakati itakayo boresha hali ya kifedha ya wananchi. Mikakati hii inahusisha uuzaji wa bidhaa kupitia soko la mtandaoni linalojulikana kama Soko Janja.
Wazo la kuanzisha soko hili lilitokana na ujuzi kuwa bidhaa za wakenya hazipati soko la kutosha kukimu mahitaji ya wauzaji. Kwa mfano, mkulima anayejihusisha na uuzaji wa mimea na mifugo huwa na wakati mgumu kupata faida kwa kazi zake kwa sababu mimea mingi huwa imeagizwa kutoka nchi za nje. Hivi basi inakuwa wazi kuwa mkulima huyu anachanika kwenye mpini na kufa njaa. Jambo hili linasikitisha hususan wakati ambapo ataugua kwa sababu fedha zake zimeadimika kama maziwa ya kuku, basi hataweza kujilipia matibabu. Kando na hayo, hali yake ya kimaisha itazidi kudidimia.
Kupitia Soko janja, mkulima huyu ataweza kupanua mipaka yake ya kupata soko na kuuza bidhaa zake kisha kupata fedha maridhawa.
Ili kutangaziwa bidhaa zako mle, unapiga picha kisha unazifafanua kwa lugha itakayomvutia mnunuzi na pia bei yazo, bila kulipishwi chochote.

Mbuga za Sayansi na teknolojia kwenye vyuo vikuu (USTPs)
Zitajengwa sitini na sita karibu na kila chuo kikuu Kenya. Lengo la mbuga hizi ni kuwa vituo vya kufanyia utafiti na kuzitafutia soko bidhaa ambazo zitaundwa kutokana na utafiti ule. Wanafunzi wa vyuo hivi ndio watafanya kazi mle, pamoja na wataalamu ambao wana ujuzi katika nyanja mbalimbali za utafiti. Mbuga hizi zitawapa wanafunzi nafasi ya ajira ya mapema badala ya kumaliza shule na kujihusisha na maovu au kutafuta kazi na kuambulia patupu.

Vituo vya Ubrica vya soko la rejareja na klinikii (URCCs)
Hivi ni vituo vya biashara na uboreshaji wa afya ambavyo vitakuwa na msingi wao vijijini. Kutakuwa na vitengo viwili katika kila kata na wilaya kubwa zikiwa na nyingi kidogo. Idadi ya vitengo imewekwa kuwa 100.
Vituo hivi vitakuwa na:
⦁ Karakana.
⦁ Vituo vya soko rejareja.
⦁ Vituo vya kliniki.

Haya ni maeneo ambayo yatahusika na kuboresha hali ya mazao na kuongeza thamani kwa bidhaa zilizozalishwa nchini. Kutakuwa na vipengele vya usindikaji wa mimea na bidhaa na sehemu za kuunda bidhaa mpya kati ya mengine kwa ajili ya kuboresha vinavyoonekana. Hatimaye, hii itahakikisha uhifadhi wa bidhaa za chakula na mimea ambazo lazima kuhifadhiwa mahali safi ili kuzuia magonjwa.

Vituo vya soko rejareja
Hivi ni vituo vya kuonyesha bidhaa kutoka kwenye karakana ili kuvutia wanunuzi. Bidhaa zenyewe hupelekwa hapa ili wanunuzi waweza kuzipata kwa urahisi. Pia, picha za bidhaa hizi zinaweza kuchukuliwa na kuwekwa kwenye duka la rejareja la mtandaoni linalojulikana kama Soko Janja ili kuvutia wanunuzi zaidi.

Vituo vya kliniki
Kutokana na kukusanya fedha maridhawa baada ya kuuza bidhaa, watu wataweza kulipia huduma zao za matibabu. Vituo hivi vya kliniki vitawapa watu huduma bora za afya. Wagonjwa walio na Ubricoin wataweza kupokea huduma hii kwa bei nafuu kwa magonjwa yoyote yale. Huduma hii itahakikisha kuboreka kwa viwango vya maisha na hatimaye kukuza taifa lenye afya.

L’intelligence artificielle est-elle une panacée ?

Le terme intelligence artificielle (IA) a été inventé en 1956, mais l’IA est devenue populaire aujourd’hui.

Chez Ubrica, grâce à l’utilisation d’Ubricoin pour mettre en œuvre des projets de santé, nous assurerons un soutien suffisant pour la découverte de solutions aux problèmes de santé les plus préoccupants survenant sur le continent africain. Notre objectif est de créer et de fournir des services de soins de santé de pointe qui englobent l’intelligence artificielle (IA).

L’IA est une technologie informatique utilisée dans le but de collecter des données à des fins de recherche, de détecter des maladies, de gérer des maladies chroniques et de fournir des services de santé. L’IA peut potentiellement aider à la détection précoce d’épidémies de maladies infectieuses et de sources d’épidémies, telles que la contamination de l’eau. Il a la capacité de collecter, d’analyser et de comprendre des quantités considérables de données non structurées et variables; images visuelles, texte et chiffres statistiques. Le rendant plus puissant et efficace dans l’exécution de tâches. Actuellement, nous avons d’importants domaines de maladies qui utilisent des outils d’IA, notamment le cancer, les maladies neurologiques et cardiologiques.

Avec la possibilité d’utiliser un ordinateur, l’IA peut effectuer des tâches similaires à celles de l’apprentissage humain, ainsi que de la prise de décision. Le système d’IA utilisera la reconnaissance vocale et textuelle pour comparer les symptômes et les antécédents médicaux fournis par le patient à une base de données des symptômes, des maladies et des diagnostics.

Notre objectif en utilisant un outil d’intelligence artificielle est de rassembler toutes les données de santé humaine, les archives historiques, le dossier de santé électrique moderne, les nouvelles données des patients, les études de recherche, les essais cliniques, le développement de médicaments et de dispositifs, etc. Et pour tout analyser, AI proposera des corrélations, des recommandations de traitement et transmettra les informations à des professionnels de la santé.

Les chercheurs humains ne lisent généralement que quelques centaines d’articles médicaux publiés par an, sur les milliers disponibles. L’utilisation de l’intelligence artificielle pour lire, analyser et corréler ces articles constituera une solution plus efficace, plus rapide et plus précise.

Avantages de l’IA

L’IA exécute fréquemment des tâches informatiques volumineuses sans fatigue. L’intelligence artificielle ne peut pas être vendue à titre individuel, mais plutôt améliorée. L’IA peut agir en tant que coach de vie rappelant aux patients de prendre des médicaments, de faire de l’exercice ou de manger plus sainement. L’IA peut également améliorer la crise sanitaire en raison de la pénurie de médecins, d’infirmières et d’autres personnels formés à la clinique, de longues périodes d’attente dans les hôpitaux et les cliniques, des temps d’attente prolongés pour des chirurgies spécialisées et autres procédures.

En permettant à l’IA de gérer un grand volume de tâches de soins et de diagnostic simples, les médecins et les infirmières pourront ainsi se consacrer davantage à des cas plus complexes. Nous savons qu’un médecin peut être sujet à un diagnostic erroné en raison de la difficulté de distinguer des maladies spécifiques. avec des erreurs médicales d’IA, ceci peut être réduit


Malgré ses avantages, AI doit également faire face à ses propres défis. Le système d’IA pour la santé se concentre sur une seule tâche, il ne peut pas être confié à une autre tâche. L’intelligence artificielle est loin de se comporter comme des humains capables d’effectuer plusieurs tâches à la fois.

L’intelligence artificielle a été lente à se développer dans le système de santé en raison de systèmes informatiques obsolètes, de pénuries de médecins, de données fragmentées ou inexistantes.

La seule limite d’IA est qu’elle apprend des données dont elle se nourrit. Le seul moyen d’intégrer le savoir. Par conséquent, toutes les inexactitudes dans les données utilisant la méthode Internet traditionnelle seront reflétées dans les résultats. Mais en utilisant la technologie Blockchain, il n’existe aucun emplacement central permettant de stocker des données. Par conséquent, les données ne peuvent pas être altérées.

Avant que les systèmes d’IA puissent être développés dans les soins de santé, ils doivent être formés à l’aide de données générées à partir d’activités cliniques. Tels que le dépistage, le diagnostic, le traitement, etc. D’où prend du temps.

Comme nous le concluons, il sera difficile d’introduire l’IA dans les soins de santé, mais nous savons tous que le peuple swahili dit «haba na haba hujaza kibaba», ce qui signifie peu à peu que la mesure est remplie et si peu patience, AI avance de jour en jour. Bien que ce ne soit pas la panacée suivante pour les problèmes de santé.

Is Artificial Intelligence a Panacea?

The Term Artificial Intelligence (AI) was coined in 1956, but AI has become popular today.

We at Ubrica, with the use of Ubricoin to implement health projects, will ensure sufficient support for discovery of solutions to most troubling health problems emerging from the African continent.  It is our aim to build and provide high advanced health care services that will embrace Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI, is a computer technology used for the purpose of collecting data for research purpose, detect diseases, manage chronic diseases and deliver health services.  AI has the potential to aid early detection of infectious disease outbreaks and sources of epidemics, such as water contamination. It has the ability to collect, analyze and make sense of extensive amounts of unstructured and variable data; visual images, text and statistical numbers. Making it more powerful and effective at performing tasks. Currently we have major disease areas that use AI tools, these include cancer, neurological and cardiological disease.

With the ability to use a computer, AI can perform tasks that are similar to those of human learning, as well as decision making. The AI system will use speech, text recognition to compare the symptoms and medical history provided by the patient, against a database of symptoms, diseases and diagnosis.

Our goal using AI tool is to bring together all human health data, historical record, the modern electrical health record, new patient data, research studies, clinical trials, drug and device development and more. And to analyze it all, AI will offer correlations, recommendations for treatment and put the information into the hands of healthcare professionals.

Human researchers typically only read a few hundred published medical articles per year, out of the thousands that are available. Using AI to read and analyze and correlate these articles will present a more efficient solution, faster and accurately.

Benefits of AI

AI performs frequent high volume computer tasks without fatigue.  AI cannot be sold as an individual, rather it is improved. AI can act as life coaches reminding patients to take pills, exercise or eat healthier. AI can also improve health crisis due to lack of availability of doctors, nurses and other clinically trained staff, long ques in hospitals and clinics, long wait times for specialized surgeries and other procedures.

By allowing AI to handle large volume of simple care and diagnostic tasks, will free up doctors and nurses to attend to more complex cases. We know a doctor can be prone to misdiagnosis due to how difficult it can be to distinguish specific diseases; with AI medical errors this can be reduced.


Despite its benefits, AI faces its own challenges as well. AI system for health focuses on a single task, it cannot be given another different task. AI is far from behaving like humans who are able to multi-task.

AI has been slow to develop in the healthcare system due to outdated computer systems, doctor shortages, fragmented or non-existent data.

AI only limitation is, it learns from the data its fed on. The only way in which knowledge can be incorporated. Therefore, any inaccuracies in the data using the traditional internet method, will be reflected in the results. But using Blockchain technology, there is no central location that stores data, thus data cannot be tampered with.

Before the AI systems can be developed in healthcare, they need to be trained through data generated from clinical activities. Such as screening, diagnosis, treatment and so on. Hence time consuming.

As we conclude, bringing about AI in healthcare will be a challenge but we all know as the Swahili people say, ‘haba na haba hujaza kibaba,’ which means little by little fills the measure, and so little by little, step by step with patience, AI is advancing by the day. Although, it is not the next panacea for health problems.
