DRIVING TRANSFORMATION” is the slogan of the 2018 round, ICT is transforming the world through innovative ideas, concepts and platforms. However, the ICT field itself is transforming as important shifts are happening in both the telecommunication and the Information Technology fields. The major shift in new cutting-edge AI technologies has both current and future potential impact across all industry and service sectors in terms of capabilities and endless opportunities for all. But with opportunity comes the challenge, pointing out that data generated by AI is owned only by the few  companies and/or individuals – who use their data ownership for their own profit maximization. Introducing AI in heavily populated countries, such as Egypt or Nigeria will receive resistance as AI increasingly replaces humans in many professions and jobs. Introducing AI and its potential needs to be associated with a serious discussion about the future of work-force in the AI era, which is not only transforming societies but also transforming the ICT industry itself.
