From the Google AI Lab in Accra, to IBM’s research lab in Nairobi and Facebook’s new office in Nigeria, big tech giants have already recognised Africa’s potential in this space. This has led to increasing demand and development of data science talent on the continent.
Institutions like the African Institute of Mathematical Studies, running a Masters in Machine Intelligence, are building up a pool of talent with skills in data science, AI and machine learning.
Join us in this virtual panel as we discuss what opportunities and challenges exist in connecting Africa’s data science talent to the world.
