Data science, led by Africa-based scientists, can play a key role in tackling real-life challenges across African communities and sectors such as education, health and sustainable development. There is potential for researchers in Africa to contribute more to the data science revolution that is rapidly accelerating contributions to improvements in these domains.
Strathmore Data Week 2020 focuses on cultivating data science research in Africa. The event will provide a platform for PhDs and early career researchers in data science to interact and exchange ideas. The week will also provide a spotlight for women academics, experts, researchers and leaders in data science to present their research, share ideas and map a way forward for other women in the space.
