Millennium Fellowship Project: Artificial intelligence (AI) Goes to School
This Project is targeted at Secondary school students in Osun state Nigeria. It is believed amongst alot of professionals and thought ledaers that Artificial Intelligence is the next revolution that will change the course of industrial and commercial existence but once again Africa and Nigeria in particular is being left behind as the world is already tending towards AI but the continent & its inhabitants are relatively ignorant or ill informed about AI. We have taken it as a responsibility to lay the foundation of interest in Aritificial intelligence in the very next Generation of career professionals who are basically still high school students. We intend to organize series of Talk Exercise at various secondary schools in osun state, these talks wll be fully centered on Artificial Intelligence and also we intend to invite AI enthusiast and professionals from organizations like Data Science Nigeriato help with the facilitation of these talks. This project is expected to reach about 250 Students at a ratio of 50 Students per School as we intend to carry out this exercise in a total of five schools.
