According to them, the AI centre is pivotal to Google’s plans to develop AI solutions to tackle various social issues. The centre is expected to work closely with educational research institutions in the country to develop a wide array of tools and solutions to challenges.

Now the makeup of the Google AI team is pretty interesting. Drawn from an array of developers with different specialisations, the team is made up of individuals from 10 countries. These include nationals from Nigeria, Lesotho, USA, Israel, Canada, Ireland, the UK, Senegal, Uganda and Ghana.

The new AI centre is the latest of such centres to debut on the African continent. IBM launched an AI centre in Kenya some few years back, whileMicrosoft is on the verge of opening an engineering centre in Lagos, Nigeria.
