    About

    Situated at the southern tip of Africa, Cape Town houses a young and vibrant tech scene eager to flourish and showcase its homegrown solutions to global issues. Being so far away in physical space from a lot of international AI development presents unique challenges, but also opportunities to collaborate including welcoming stakeholders seeking to grow into Africa e.g. as Tencent and Naspers have done. In a beautiful city with wonderful people, the passion that drives us all fuels our universities, corporates, start-ups, and entrepreneurs. While young, there is plenty of room to grow the already promising base of machine learning enthusiasts. CONTACT: Chantal Louw, Cape Town AI ambassador
