It has been two awesome years of transformational impact as a non-profit committed to the knowledge and application of Big Data, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence for sustainable socio-economic development. We appreciate our partners, supporters, friends, community members and the convener, Olubayo Adekanmbi for the selfless service to the next generation.
The last two years have been a proof of our commitment to build a world-class Artificial Intelligence knowledge, research and innovation ecosystem that delivers high impact & transformational research, business use applications, AI-first start-ups, employability and social good use cases.
