Dear MIIA community,
Best wishes to all for 2017!
The Machine Intelligence Institute of Africa (MIIA) is excited to announce a partnership with Data Science Nigeria, a non-profit organization to accelerate data science adoption and raise a new breed of local experts by training and mentoring young Nigerians through face-to-face, virtual online classes, project-based support and holiday boot camps. Data Science Nigeria, an initiative of MTN’s executive, Bayo Adekanmbi, has launched on 26 November 2016 with Dr Uyi Stewart, Chief Data Scientist with IBM, USA that lead the plenary session. Data Science Nigeria, has now progressed to skill development workshops and will run the first bootcamp in Lekki axis of Lagos State between Friday 20 and Sunday 22 January 2017 (see links below for more details).
