TECH4ALL: Empowering Developers To Empower Communities
Huawei’s digital inclusion initiative TECH4ALL aims to ensure that the benefits of digital technology reach everyone.
In the context of the three priorities of TECH4ALL — skills, technology, and applications — tech influencers Dr. Craig Brown and Marsha Collier talk about some of the initiative’s aims and achievements since its launch in early 2019.
Applications: Creating A Strong Developer Ecosystem
TECH4ALL aims to empower ecosystems and help developers create more applications for different communities and industries.
Dr. Craig Brown explains how Huawei’s developer ecosystem and partnership approach can enable developers to create apps like TrackAI that can in turn empower people – in this case, the visually impaired.

Skills: Filling the ICT Talent Gap
TECH4ALL seeks to frame partnerships with local governments, communities, and other sectors to enhance the digital skills of all of society.
Marsha Collier talks about what Huawei is doing to make up for the shortfall in skills that is affecting the ICT industry, especially in the areas of data science and AI. In the US alone, for example, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a million more jobs available in computing than applicants who can fill them by 2020.
