Data science is poised to help improve the quality of life for Africans and raise awareness of crucial impact topics.

Johannesburg/Vienna 25 July 2022: As the physical world migrates to the virtual world, a future-focused global player has entered Africa’s metaverse, Africarare. The Austria-based World Data Lab (WDL) has joined Ubuntuland, acquiring a 6 x 6 village where they will establish their presence and connect to other leading organisations.

WDL has long-term plans to use the power of data science to improve the quality of life for people in Africa by partnering with private and public sector players and raising awareness around key impact topics. In addition, the company is in the process of opening a physical office in Kenya with ambitious growth plans on the continent. WDL’s first Ubuntuland-based projects currently under evaluation and construction are:

  • Opening a Consumer Insights hub for organisations looking to establish or expand their footprint in the fast-growing African market.
  • Providing Metaverse addressable market statistics and an analytics board.

The organization takes strategic insights and data-driven decision-making to the next level by developing the most credible, granular, global, and forward-looking economic and demographic forecasts for leading organizations such as L’Oréal, Danone, McKinsey, Deloitte, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others. The company is widely known for their insights and analytics platform World Data Pro, as well as for being creators of public goods, aka clocks, that track the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in real-time, most notably:
