The Nigeria’s National Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, has inaugurated a National Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. The plan is to anchor Nigeria’s Fourth Industrial Revolution participation through the center. As always, it comes down to Innovation = Invention + commercialization. We have been thinking, time for the market. Good luck, Nigeria.

  1. Hope we are not creating one more bureaucracy here? Because naming a centre AI and Robotics won’t make you become great in those areas. We have plenty centres in the land, but our fortunes haven’t improved anyway.

    If the government cares about AI and Robotics, it should be identifying institutions already playing there, it can then be giving grants. I still don’t know why we have universities here, since it’s clear we don’t have confidence in them.

    We have one big one of those centres near Jos, with intimidating name, how strategic and empowering our policies ever being? Yet we keep sending and graduating people there.

    All talks, no action.

    1. You are right sir Nigeria don’t value for technology, am also into robotic and Artificial intelligent , I have build drones and advance Security device. i have done so many unimaginable invention that my friends call me witch some time. I even training people on Robotic Science for fun, time without number i have writing to government for support no reply. i just believe one day one international company will see my work and hire me. If not for the passion i developed for AI i will have lost courage. check out my research work here Nigeria is just a wrong place for Science and technology.

  2. We always hope for better for our great nation if things like this can be handle by autonomous firms or private sector it will go a long way bcos government is not a good business manager.
