Zetta is a health-tech startup combining the power of artificial intelligence with the richness of healthcare knowledge, data, and experience to detect early autism in children.
Being the first of its kind in the country, Zetta is focused on facilitating the early diagnosis of autism in Africa using a portable and low-cost electroencephalography headset with automated diagnosis.
The headset, when designed, will be placed on the scalp of the individual, and its mobile application will be connected to it via Bluetooth and record the signals from the different scalp positions.
The Hacklab Foundation is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Ghana with focus on preparing the youth for future digital jobs through technology education and skills development, through boot camps, hackathons, mentorship and coaching, internships, digital skills training and job placement.
