Where and How Far Could Artificial Intelligence Take Africa?

With access to high-quality broadband and cloud computing continuing to spread, organisations are recognising artificial intelligence's (AI) ability to help with some of the continent's most pervasive problems, from reducing poverty to improving healthcare and enhancing crop yields to feed a growing population. To achieve an AI-enabled future in Africa, forward-thinking policymakers, innovative startups, technology partners, civil society groups and stakeholders all need to work together to promote a vibrant AI ecosystem in Africa - one that enables inclusive growth and provides a clear and trusted path to digital transformation, writes Amrote Abdella for CIO East Africa.
