About IndabaX Nigeria

IndabaX Nigeria is a one-day event consisting of Lectures, Tutorials, and Lab Sessions on Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, and other Machine Learning areas.

It will feature Poster Presentations, Keynote Session, Women in AI/WiML lunch/mentoring round-table discussion and some AI Product display.

IndabaX Nigeria will become the ultimate centralized meeting point for all the various AI interventions in Nigeria, whilst leveraging on the established practices of the global Indaba. It will provide a platform to access global knowledge and align local efforts to the Pan African developmental focus on a large scale. With the emerging role of Nigeria as one of the fastest growing technology communities in the world (as validated by the Octoverse report by GitHub on the usage of its platform), there is a need to provide an inclusive national platform for all the disparate AI efforts in different parts of the country.
