Introducing AMMI: Africa’s flagship program in machine intelligence.
The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) have announced the launch of a one-year intensive African Master’s in Machine Intelligence (AMMI) in partnership with Facebook and Google. The master’s will begin this September at the AIMS-Rwanda campus in Kigali.
AMMI will be a one-year intensive Master’s program. It will provide brilliant young Africans with state-of-the-art training in machine learning and its applications. AMMI will open the doors to doing world-class research and to building new technologies. Every course on AMMI will be lectured by leading experts, from prestigious international institutions.
AMMI will commence at AIMS Rwanda this September. We plan to launch AMMI in other African countries in the future, spreading its impact across the continent. We expect a significant part of the first AMMI cohort to continue on to PhD study or to join the best industrial and public R&D labs, in Africa and beyond. They will be the pioneers of an ecosystem of African machine intelligence scientists bringing a fresh perspective to the global scientific community and achieving crucial breakthroughs.
In the long term, we expect AMMI graduates to make enormous contributions to their home countries and continent by delivering technological solutions which improve agriculture, education and healthcare and which boost industry, employment and economic growth.
If you are interested in applying to the AMMI program, please send your resume, transcripts and a cover letter to [email protected].
