Revolutionizing The World With Artificial Intelligence by osarenomaspecial: 8:49am On Nov 15, 2017
Artificial intelligence is the next big thing, according to one of my mentor in A.I, Andrew Ng, who is a professor at Stanford university and also a cofounder of coursera, A.I is the new electricity. A.I will improve national security, health care, transportation, banking and so on. according to research there is shortage of human resources In the field. I want to encourage Africans to pick up this field with enormous opportunities. I am planing to create a group and also write to ministry of science and technology to setup a research lab here in Nigeria. I believe if adequate attention is given to A.I in Nigeria and use in the military boko haram in sambisa forest will be history.

This is good.
AI is going to solve interesting problems in the world. The idea of a research lab is not bad. However, I will be more interested in a research lab that also has a research application deployment unit that applies research to solve practical societal challenges.

Let us also note that there are some problems that AI cannot fix for us (e.g. current electricity challenge and poor roads are not direct problems AI will solve)

P.S.
A friend and myself started a blog to write about AI and it's benefits to Nigeria. We aim to help stimulate and build AI interest in Nigeria, which can in turn help foster a community. I will share the link soon.

Additionally, another effort of AI community building worth mentioning is by the guys from Forloop (http://forloop.africa/). The recently started a ForloopAI movement (https://twitter.com/forloopai), which I believe will host meetups/conference in different cities to start a community of AI development. I believe they will deliver on this going by what they have done with general developer community building.
