Center for Digital Acceleration

DAI’s Center for Digital Acceleration builds on DAI’s decades of experience to design and deploy innovative, user-centered digital tools that drive change across emerging markets.

Technology Research and Development

From programming distributed ledger applications to machine learning models in real-world contexts, we understand how to drive innovation while still achieving results. This requires not only a deep understanding of what a technology product does, but also how it works. With our internal team of software programmers, we support our clients to stay at the cutting edge of digital tools and how to integrate these tools into their work.
