Nairobi — AUTONOMOUS Cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) technology are set to play a prominent role in transforming Kenya into a newly industrialised, middle-income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens by 2030.
This is according to a global technology company that has showcased its latest Cloud led digital solutions to business and government leaders in the East African country.
