“We have created this event so that start-ups and the big ICT/ Cloud/ AI players can all be in the same room, something that is often overlooked by event organizers who exclude SMEs, so this event is uniquely inclusive in that regard, we also have dedicated tracks for innovation, vendors and case studies so delegates will see ‘real world’ AI business applications they can adopt now, “stated Nick Bradshaw, Event Director.
The Expo and conference will gather the largest pan-African AI community with a shared vision of growing AI for the benefit of Africa. Skills partners like Silicon Cape along with platform providers will assist in creating a skill development programme that will enable Africans to take their place in this new technology day.
They are also proud to be working with AI Expo chosen charity and upliftment partner the Starting Chance who are creating grassroots educational environments in the Western Cape.
