What is Africa IoT & AI Challenge and Why It Matters?

Africa IoT & AI Challenge is a regional capacity-building and pre-incubation program for Senior University Students and Startups that have innovative ideas in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) & Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related fields to enable and leverage a smart future. The challenge is not just a competition, it\’s a digital transformation movement, that\’s why it delivers training and workshops to the participants and provides them with all the needed support. After the training, participants compete in local finals, then winners from each country get qualified to the regional finals to compete for the African title.

The challenge is co-organized by several national and international partners like the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) with its dedicated society for Technology and Engineering Management (IEEE TEMS), and different universities, corporates and governmental entities in Africa. The program unites the resources and experiences of the organizers and their respective partners to avail all the required materials, mentors and expertise to the participating projects.

Our Vision

The Internet of Things and the Artificial Intelligence are the next evolution that will dramatically change the existing industries. Corporates and big technology providers, as well as governments, will put significant efforts into developing solutions for their customers which will allow them to get developed and to improve their skills and capabilities. We believe that the time is ripe for the industry to embrace open innovation to accelerate the transformations that these technologies will bring and how this will impact the ICT industry in Africa and the world.

Our Mission

The challenge is on a mission to stimulate an innovation-based economy in Africa through strategizing, facilitating, and promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, and the creation of intellectual property in AIoT and its applications. The challenge is working on building the youth capabilities for the digital transformation era in Africa, and identifying the potential investment-ready tech-based startups in the continent.
