R&D

Some members of the team from IBM Research Africa pose for a photo. Pictured left to right are Pavan Kumar Rallabandi,
Tapiwa Chiwewe, Solomon Assefa, Fungai Mandikuwaza, Precious Khuthadzo Razwiedane, Darlington Shingirirai Mapiye and

between communicable and
non-communicable diseases.
"It's well-known that a third
of all cancers in Africa are tied
to infectious diseases," says Dr.
David Moinina Sengeh, head of
healthcare research at the lab in
South Africa. "At the core, we're
building and exploring network
graphs for various conditions. If
you have deep insights in cancer
and tuberculosis, for example,
you are able to abstract relationships that we don't usually
talk about."
Within the lab, an Advanced
and Applied AI team is working
on multiple issues. One team
is currently building a network
of air quality sensors around

Johannesburg and helping the
city to predict "bad air days" and
their impact on public health,
while another has developed a
free, web-based mobile app that
can help Africans understand the
needs and costs of installing solar
panels based on their GPS location and specific energy needs.
One project has applied
machine learning to the issue of
wildfires in South Africa. Currently, emergency services and
provincial governments use a
crude system developed in the
1970s to assess the risk of dry
season wildfires and allocate
resources. Models based on historical data have already proved
more accurate.

Dealing With Data
Possibly the highest profile
project that the lab is working
on is around preparation for the
nation's largest science project,
the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)
radio telescope. Under construction in South Africa's Karoo desert
(and sites in Australia and New
Zealand) the SKA is the world's
largest big data project. Its
receivers are expected to generate
upwards of 5 exobytes (i.e., 1
million TBs) of data every single
day. By comparison, the Large
Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN
generates an average of 20 PB per
day (although when the LHC is
running, it generates a petabyte
per second of raw data).
