Gathering of Africa AI leaders
Valiant leaders drive Ai communities across the African continent, constituting the continent’s greatest hope for preparing its people for the future of work.
They however all face challenges to growing efficiently, like figuring out how to decide on curriculum, finding access to data and compute and guiding their learners on places to find jobs.
Individually however, they each have answers to problems keeping other leaders awake at night.
