What truly lies at the heart of AI's transformative potential, especially in the context of Africa?
Join us for an enlightening in-person fireside chat featuring two distinguished guests who have left their indelible marks on the AI landscape. First, we have Jade Abbott, founder at Lelapa.AI & Masakhane, and a visionary in the realm of AI and NLP for African languages.

Jade's passion is to challenge and reshape the Western world's perception of Africa and Africans, advocating for inclusivity and empowerment.
