The project is to write an article for publication in local newspapers in the area of ICT, IS or Computer Science. The proposed topic is: Using Mobile Telephony in Fog Computing for processing real-time crime data.
Traditionally, the internet via broadband, cable or dsl has been the mode by which we process information. I am studying the prospects of using mobile telephony as another way of processing large amounts of data (audio + video) especially in the area of law enforcement. In Africa, mobile telephony penetration is quite high so it is quite logical to leverage on that to obtain credible information from crime data.
