Can Africa compete? Or will AI developments push Africa further behind

Do you see Africa playing a part in the upcoming AI shift? In light of this question Ndubuisi and Andrew outline where they think many African states stand today in terms of their macroeconomics, and ability to technologically compete in the global arena. Furthermore, they discuss what they consider to be the real issues preventing the continent’s elevation to an internationally competitive role.

Regardless of whether or not you think AI will eventually destroy humanity, you would likely agree that key parts of our technological landscape are being shifted by it. But given that Africa is perceived to have a less developed technology space than the West and most other parts of the world, can we foresee Africa playing any part in the what people are calling the AI revolution?

Ndubuisi and Andrew discuss where they think many African states are today in terms of their macroeconomics and ability to technologically compete. Furthermore, they outline what they consider to be the real issue, beyond AI or any other potential future developments, which is keeping the continent from having a role in global advancements.
