5. Why is your idea innovative?*
GSM mobile integration for communication, though smart phones and internet is growing in Africa, there a few regions and individuals that are still using GSM button phones. This is because they can’t afford smart phones and costs of the internet.
The idea is to register different individuals phone numbers, so that if communication of an opportunity is published, they receive notifications and alerts directly on the phone.
Artificial intelligence integration – using AI the system will assess, collet behavior, feedback, analyzing the user data pattern, draw deep insights about users, provide better personalization and make autonomous decisions. Further filter fake news
