MasterStart and Cambridge Spark now offer AI training courses throughout Africa
Artificial intelligence is a hot topic these days, but there is also a skills shortage in the space that needs to be addressed.
As it so happens, we have something that might interest those looking to dive into the world of AI.
Local edtech firm MasterStart and UK-based Cambridge Spark announced a partnership today that will open up data analysis and AI training courses to folks across the African continent.
The courses will take place online due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has notably disrupted education and as such, efforts to address the skill gap in AI and data analysis.
“This partnership aims to develop and promote the use of data analysis to accelerate technological and data-driven innovation that will help unlock Africa’s potential on a global scale,” says Cambridge Spark founder and chief executive officer, Gabriel Urma.
“It will also contribute to data science skills development and the empowerment of African youths in a field that is increasingly providing opportunities for career advancement,” the CEO added.
MasterStart has spent recent years building out its portfolio of management and leadership courses in partnership with South Africa’s most prestigious business schools including USB-Ed, University of Cape Town and GIBS.
The company delivers programmes to over 5 000 students each year and has provided training in over sixty countries including Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Zambia.
If AI and data analysis doesn’t get your motor running, MasterStart has a number of business focused courses that look rather interesting such as this one from the Gordon Institute of Business Science on Digital Transformation.
