CAPE TOWN, South Africa, 28th July 2019 – Machine Intelligence Institute of Africa (MIIA) to Participate in AI Expo Africa 2019 from 3 – 5 September 2019.

 The Machine Intelligence Institute of Africa (MIIA) is a non-profit organization founded by Dr Jacques Ludik in 2016 – the same year in which he founded Cortex Logic. The mission of MIIA is to help establish and foster key relationships and partnerships within the Artificial Intelligence ‘Network of Excellence’ – creating a strong, innovative Machine Intelligence and Data Science community and dialogue in Africa through networking, collaboration and conversation. MIIA’s growing network consists of stakeholders in the African AI Ecosystem, including 3200+ members and key decision-makers in academia, businesses, NGOs, NPOs, investment, government and entrepreneurship.

MIIA is excited to announce that we’ll be participating in AI Expo Africa 2019, taking place at the Century City Conference Centre from the 3rd to the 5th of September 2019 – considered the largest B2B-focused Artificial Intelligence and Data Science Community and Trade event in Africa. This year’s event builds on the success of the inaugural event held in Cape Town in 2018, a gathering of CxOs, entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors in the region – focusing on real-world AI and Data Science business applications. Last year’s event was supported by 700+ delegates, 270+ companies, 60+ speakers and 40+ sponsors, and will see the support from large organizations such IBM, PWC, Microsoft, Telkom and SMBs including Genii AI, InstaDeep, and Cortex Logic this year. International community members such as the ITU, French Embassy, Business France, Data Science Nigeria and South Africa’s Fliptin, will also be welcomed at this year’s event.

This year’s event will also see a range of new features, ensuring maximized and immersive learning experiences for CxOs, entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors – including an African AI Demo Zone, AI Innovation Cafe, AI Art & Music Challenge, Innovation Wall, as well as a series of intensive executive and skills development workshops. MIIA will leverage this opportunity to engage with key stakeholders – not only to discover new players in the African AI Ecosystem, but to engage with them, partner with valuable stakeholders in the ‘Network of Excellence’ and grow our collaborative community.
