Empowering Education: Connecting AI for African Advancement

The Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology supports the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive advancements in education and technology.

Deputy Minister Hon. Omary Kipanga expressed this during the opening of the first International Conference on the Advancements of Artificial Intelligence in African Context (AAIAC) event, which took place on November 15, 2023, in Arusha. The event was organized by The Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in collaboration with The University of Dodoma (UDOM).

Hon. Kipanga emphasized that the emergence of artificial intelligence does not undermine human intelligence or the education system instead, it strengthens educational institutions and highlights the importance of universities in preparing youth for further development.

Professor Lugano Kusiluka, the Vice Chancellor of UDOM, acknowledged that while scholars heavily reliant on artificial intelligence in their studies may face challenges when explaining their work to knowledgeable supervisors, it does not diminish the significance of human intelligence.

Professor Maulilio Kipanyula, the Vice Chancellor of NM-AIST, stressed the widespread use of artificial intelligence across institutions. It is crucial to build ICT capacity to ensure that research aligns with the pace of AI utilization. This approach enables addressing societal challenges and promoting overall development.
