    About

    Nairobi's AI ecosystem is young but vibrant with a rapidly growing community of enthusiasts, a plethora of AI-enabled businesses, various research and education centers opening, and a small but growing number of core AI companies. Many AI practitioners in Kenya are self-taught, and highly practical in their application of AI to solve real problems, including standout applications of AI to address key challenges facing the continent such as digital trust, broad-based financial inclusion, last mile logistics, connectivity, health, and education. There is currently an AI dedicated co-working space, two private AI colleges, and a handful of member-based groups and initiatives. CONTACT: Jason Eisen, Nairobi AI ambassador
