It's hard to imagine surfing the Internet here in of rural Uganda..but now these kids are tapping into the world wide web, thanks to oil drum computers... powered by the sun. Sharad Sapra of Unicef says Internet access here has been long overdue. [Sharad Sapra, UNICEF Uganda]: "The innovative technologies like these actually help create a digital bridge between those who have access to Internet and those who don't, in a low cost sturdy fashion." The first of its kind, the solar operated computer is housed within a recycled oil drum, for use in remote places where access to power is limited, according to project coordinator, Seth Hurr. [Seth Hurr, UNICEF Digital Drum Project Coordinator]: "The objective is to put them in places that are as rural as possible, areas where people don't have access to really any information, a lot of these villages and towns don't have full time teachers so they have schools but students don't really have access to anything in the way of information." Analysts say only about 10 percent of Uganda's population uses the Internet but using available resources, a new generation is bridging the gap.

Code for Africa: The Emergence of Computer Science in Ghana and Uganda Lecture: Research Exchange: Data and Democracy Initiative | March 13 | 12-1 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, 310, Banatao Auditorium Speaker/Performer: Gregg Zachary, Arizona State University Sponsor: CITRIS (Ctr for Info Technology Research in the Interest of Society) Abstract: Formal training in computer science and engineering is undergoing a revolution in East and West Africa. More than a decade after the introduction of the affordable Internet and low-cost computers to each of these African sub-regions, the era of self-taught, bottoms-up software programming and computer science is coming to an end. Formal, university-based CS education is growing in quality in East and West Africa, promising deeper, more sustainable understanding of digital technologies in these sub-regions. In the best universities in Uganda and Ghana, new and increasingly original research is laying the foundations for the creation of authentic and even world-class CS knowledge enterprises, especially at the nexus of mobile communications, media and information services. The first evidence of an authentic East African research agenda is beginning to be seen. Obstacles to East and West Africans joining the mainstream of global CS research remain stubbornly high, but because of unique social, economic and cultural conditions in East and West Africa, the possibility is growing that CS researchers from these sub-regions will make significant, world-class contributions in coming decades. More broadly, the emergence of CS in sub-Saharan Africa could help orient digital innovation more towards the authentic needs and realities of life in developing regions, thus helping to reduce and perhaps (ultimately) nullify an innovation "gap" that has disadvantaged peoples of the developing world since the dawn of digital computing.
