About AMMI

In September 2018, we launched the African Masters of Machine Intelligence (AMMI) at AIMS thanks to the sponsorship of Facebook and Google and the exceptional support of the global AI community. The goal of AMMI is to bring the best of AI education in Africa and contribute to building a healthy ecosystem of AI practitioners committed to making a positive impact on our societies. Our first cohort comprises 30 students from 10 countries.


During the past months, it has been exciting seeing them develop strong relationships and grow their technical abilities through group projects, and interactions with world-class lecturers. They now mentor students fro, their former institutions and are mentored by senior researchers in the field. In July 2019, they will graduate from AMMI and will become mentors for the students of the class of 2020.
