Challenge 

Only a few people truly believe in the power of AI and its ability to contribute to the

development of the world. As a result, projects and systems developed so far have received

no support.


Impact & Solution 

  • He is working to highlight the contributions of African scientists as a first step, and focusing on educating ourselves and the generations after us. 

  • Ensuring that African researchers get recognition for their work and adequate support. He believes that Africa is full of talent, but the lack of support and recognition means that much of the great work and minds remain unknown.
