Two Nigerians, Omolabake Adenle, and Olanisun Olufemi Adewole, have been shortlisted among 10 others for the African Innovation Foundation (AIF’s) Innovation Prize for Africa (IPA).

The landmark programme, now celebrating its sixth year under the theme, ‘African Innovation: Investing in Prosperity,’ is scheduled to take place in Accra, Ghana, in July.
IPA is the premier innovation initiative in the African continent, offering a grand share prize of $185,000 and incentives to spur growth and prosperity in Africa through home-grown solutions.
     
Adenle worked on Voice Recognition and Speech Synthesis Software for African Languages, while Adewole worked on Sweat TB Test, a non-invasive rapid skin test to detect Tuberculosis.
 
The Voice Recognition and Speech Synthesis Software for African Languages is a software solution that can understand and digitise spoken African languages, and synthesise speech from African languages presented as digitised text. The Sweat TB Test, is a non-invasive rapid diagnostic test to detect tuberculosis (TB). TB is second only to HIV/AIDS as a leading cause of death in Africa. Available methods are high tech; cannot be deployed in rural centres, dependent only sputum, which sometimes may not be collectible and considered messy by patients. It is also time consuming with patients making repeated clinic visits before a diagnosis is made.
