Ethiopian Council Of Ministers To Establish An Artificial Intelligence Research & Development Center

Posted on : Friday , 31st January 2020

Ethiopia is all set up to start AI research center. The decision calls for "a favourable environment for beginner developers and startups working in the artificial intelligence sector."


This was the latest of a series of steps taken by Ethiopia, Africa's second populous nation with a population of about 107 million, to step up AI research and development in certain and advance information and Communications technology (ICT) in general.


The move was taken "to defence Ethiopia's national interests through the development of artificial intelligence services, products and solutions based on research, development and implementation," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.


Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said the launch "marked the start of a historic moment in Ethiopia's search toward the development of space science sector," which will play a essential role in streamlining our agriculture sector by creating a favourable environment through the provision of scientific data and knowledge."


The multispectral remote-sensing microsatellite is likely to observe the environment and weather patterns for better agricultural planning, drought early warning, mining activities and forestry management of the country.


"It will also introduce a much-needed capacity for our country to compete and penetrate African and global market," he said.
