Machine Learning, Data Science, AI and Robotics
Leading Innovation in Africa
Data scientists and machine learning specialists are in high demand. The evolving nature of innovations powered by AI means that those involved will be able to drive change at every level of society. Researchers in this area will help solve problems facing society locally and internationally, and drive innovations that will impact how future generations use technology. The potential benefits of this technology are wide and numerous, but realising them presents deep scientific and engineering challenges. The fields of AI, data science, robotics, machine learning, and other related fields offer great opportunities for South Africa and Africa to play a part in developing and innovating solutions and shaping them to deal with our realities. We aim to be at the forefront in one of the most important pursuits of modern science.
